Barcelona Having Hard Time Fighting Off PSG’s Obsession With Lamine Yamal

Written by Olaleye Oluwadamilola

Barcelona is horrified at the idea of losing Lamine Yamal, the youngster who represents their best chance for the future, in the same way that they lost standout forwards Neymar Junior and Lionel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain in recent years.

More Details

Early in March, it was reported that PSG officials were interested in 16-year-old Lamine Yamal. On Tuesday, it became known that the French team is seriously considering making a bid for the 16-year-old to take Kylian Mbappe’s place as their star player. In the end, Barcelona is still in control because Lamine Yamal has a €1 billion release clause in his contract, which runs until 2026.

According to Toni Juanmarti of Sport, the teenager’s desire to stay at Barcelona may be his or her trump card. Joan Fontes has disclosed, though, that Jorge Mendes, his agent, may use PSG’s interest to pressure Barcelona into offering him better terms.

Although Lamine Yamal cannot legally sign a contract longer than three years until he is an adult, the Blaugrana have an agreement with him to prolong their agreement for a further three years once he reaches 18.

If that were the true, it wouldn’t come as a surprise given how rapidly Lamine Yamal’s stock is rising. In addition to becoming Barcelona’s de facto starter in crucial games, he was also their greatest player against Real Madrid and the lone shining light during the second leg at Montjuic against Paris Saint-Germain. Barcelona’s top priority must undoubtedly be keeping Lamine Yamal, but some people question whether they can easily take care of all of their financial issues at once.


The managerial crisis at Barcelona may be resolved in the next few days. Although it now seems that he is open to continuing on for the following season, Xavi Hernandez had declared in January that he would be leaving his position as head coach at the end of the current campaign.

Rafa Marquez was expected to take Xavi’s place if he were to depart. The Mexican manager of Barca Atletico will according to Sport stay in the role for at least another season and a contract offer will be made in the upcoming weeks.

Marquez’s efforts with the B squad have delighted Barcelona, who see him as a possible contender for the first team manager’s job. But it seems like he won’t be taking over right away, which suggests Xavi will remain for a further 12 months.
