The collateral damage that the Barça club will suffer around the signing of the French striker in the Madridista squad will be of great proportions, that even Laporta is desperately looking for solutions here and there.
The arrival of Kylian Mbappé at Real Madrid not only affects the tranquility of FC Barcelona because of how crack the Frenchman is, but for another powerful reason. Already the fact that the eternal rival has such a footballer in your workforce, is a cause for concern throughout the cule house However, that is not what has Xavi and Laporta on the brink of collapse.
If PSG is resigned to losing Mbappé (and they already did), Nasser Al-Khelaïfi himself will lead an operation that is aimed at FC Barcelona. In short, if the French star leaves the Parque de los Príncipes, the replacement is already marked on the Arab sheikh’s agenda, and his name is Ousmane Dembélé. Although they play in different positions, the Mosquito will be the new leader in the Parisian attack.
Thanks to Mbappé, FC Barcelona will lose a great offensive element
As a replacement or simply as a consolation prize, this is how they see the signing of the French winger in the capital team. All the money that will be saved on the former Monaco’s record, and also the revenue they will receive from Real Madrid, will be used to convince the former Borussia Dortmund. But the truth is that the obstacle that separates the player from the French team is insignificant.
Everyone knows that PSG is one of the richest teams in the world, and they can have any player at their fingertips. They showed it with Mbappé and they will make it clear again with Dembélé. But beyond the economic power, the clause of the French winger in the Barcelona entity is relatively low. This is what Laporta is quite concerned about, who has been working on renewing his footballer for many months.
For 50 million FC Barcelona will lose Dembélé
The clause of the French attacker in the culé club is only 50 million euros, of which only 25 will go to the blaugrana coffers. The other 25 will be for the player. In addition, the salary that they offer him in the Parque de los Príncipes will be much higher than the one he earns at the Spotify Camp Nou. The balance is in favor of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, and Laporta can do little or nothing.
A miracle is what FC Barcelona needs and it could come if Ousmane Dembélé himself does his part. This is based on the striker signing the renewal in the coming days, with the inclusion of the anti-sheikh clause, which is generally 1,000 million euros. Besides, he must give his word that he will not play for PSG in the next 5 years. Can Laporta convince the player?
