Real Madrid announced the signing of Kylian Mbappé, but things could’ve been different a couple of years ago as FC Barcelona had the chance to sign the French player. Josep Maria Minguella was the former agent of Mbappé, and he revealed the time when FC Barcelona went for Ousmane Dembele over Mbappé. Minguella said, “I spoke with Mbappé's parents personally. He was 18 years old, and with Neymar’s departure, they told me that it would be a pleasure to go to Barcelona. I told Barça, and they responded that Dembélé was doing better. It’s a sad story.” Sport also reported that a former Barça executive has confirmed that Mbappé could have joined Barça in 2017 when Neymar left. The French star was playing for AS Monaco at the time, and he broke into the scene in the 2016/2017 season when he had great performances in the Champions League. Mbappé joined PSG on loan in the summer of 2017 from AS Monaco with an option to buy, which was worth over $180 million.
