In other news, Barcelona has received a remarkable bid from French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain for their teenage prodigy Lamine Yamal, signaling PSG’s intent to rejuvenate their squad. Reportedly, PSG has tabled a staggering offer of €200 million for the 16-year-old Spanish international. With superstar forward Kylian Mbappe set to depart the Parc des Princes as a free agent in the summer, PSG aims to secure Yamal as his potential replacement.
