The number of players who are aging in the line of attackers, making Barcelona intend to regenerate. So that the front lines look fresh, El Azulgrana is reportedly aiming at young Paris Saint Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.
Barcelona has three great attackers, namely Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. However, all are no longer young. Griezmann is 28 years old, while Suarez and Messi are both 32 years old.
Regarding Griezmann, the French spearhead can still serve at Camp Nou for at least the next three years. While Messi can not be released. In fact, the Catalan club intends to offer a lifetime contract to La Pulga.
That is, only Suarez can be freely released. To anticipate if El Pistolero must be sold, Barcelona is now starting to look for replacement candidates. Blaugrana has Ousmane Dembele who is only 22 years old.
However, the performance of the French player tends to fluctuate. That is why Barcelona prefers to find reliable attackers. There are two names lately widely associated with El Barca, namely Mbappe and Tottenham Hotspur star, Harry Kane.
However, between the two candidates, Barcelona claimed to prioritize Mbappe. Because the 20-year-old player has proven his capacity with Paris Saint Germain. In fact, this season he has recorded two goals and two assists in a total of six matches.
But, to get the services of Mbappe, Barcelona certainly must spend a lot of money. Because according to transfer market prices through 200 million euros. In addition, it is not certain that PSG is willing to take it off.
Therefore, if it turns out that later it failed to get Mbappe or Kane, Barcelona will reportedly approach Manchester United’s 21-year-old striker Marcus Rashford.
