Paris Saint-Germain is eyeing Lamine Yamal as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe at Parc des Princes, but Barcelona has rejected a €200 million bid for their teenage sensation.

Yamal once again proved his worth for Barca in LaLiga, scoring a remarkable solo goal against Mallorca, elevating Xavi’s team to second place in the table, just behind Real Madrid.

Throughout 2024, he has been Barcelona’s most consistent attacking threat, tallying three goals and two assists in his last eight league appearances. His performances have outshined established players like Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Joao Felix, and Ferran Torres, who have struggled to lead consistently at the top of the table.

The 16-year-old committed to a new contract in October, extending his stay at the club until 2026, with hopes of a further five-year renewal when he turns 18. Despite this, PSG has shown interest in acquiring him.

PSG is in dire need of a marquee signing to fill the void left by Neymar and Lionel Messi’s departures, with Mbappe also set to leave. The French World Cup winner is expected to join Real Madrid on a lucrative free transfer this summer. PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi is keen on replicating the success of Neymar’s transfer from Camp Nou to Paris in 2017, which set a world record fee of €222 million after activating his release clause.

However, Barcelona seems reluctant to part ways with Yamal, considering him the standout talent among La Masia graduates. The club views him as a beacon of hope for the current generation, alongside first-team players like Pedri, Gavi, Alejandro Balde, Ronald Araujo, Fermin Lopez, Pau Cubarsi, and Marc Guiu. Selling Yamal would not sit well with the fanbase, who see him as the most promising homegrown prospect since Lionel Messi.

Barcelona’s financial woes complicate matters, as they are unlikely to make any signings this summer, with club president Joan Laporta running out of options to alleviate the situation. While a quick sale of Yamal could alleviate short-term financial concerns, Laporta remains steadfast in his reluctance to part with the budding star.

Despite interest from PSG, Laporta seems unswayed, even after a meeting with super agent Jorge Mendes, who relayed PSG’s interest. PSG’s recent transfer strategy has shifted towards acquiring young talents rather than high-wage superstars, making Yamal a perfect fit for their plans.
