FC Barcelona rejects a historic €200 million PSG offer for La Masia graduate Lamine Yamal. According to Marca, the interest came into light when Yamal's agent Jorge Mendes travelled to Barcelona to meet Joan Laporta.

The Catalan Giants already had their doubts regarding PSG's interest, but offering such a huge amount only hints at their seriousness. French star Kylian Mbappe has rejected the French Giant's offer for extension and many sources claim that the forward will be joining Real Madrid for a free ahead of the next season.

Paris-Saint Germain is trying to prepare for a post-Mbappe era and also an era that might be defined by Luis Enrique's genius. Hence, they are in search of new future superstars who might help them lift the coveted UEFA Champions League, which will help them cement their place as one of Europe's best clubs.

Will Barcelona Revisit The Offer?

Everyone knows about Barça's financial situation, and PSG's offer is also very tempting. Joan Laporta has already taken a stance, but there might still be the possibility where the club revisits the offer. Well, this can't be far from the truth.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has made it clear that Lamine Yamal is an indispensable part of the club. The kid is only 16-years-old but has already broken many records. The Spanish winger has also become a regular for Xavi and Luis de la Fuente's La Roja side.

The Spaniard was only 15 when he made his first appearance for the senior team. Lamine Yamal's goal against Mallorca is the light that has continued to keep the title hopes alive. This batch from La Masia is a special one for FC Barcelona and they might imitate the success of Prime Barcelona.

Laporta believes that Araujo, Gavi, Pedri, Cubarsí, Balde, Fermín and Lamine Yamal are the future of the club. The sports management will continue to build a team around these players who possess the
'Barça DNA' and selling any of them is out of the question.
