Lamine Yamal has gone on to become a crucial part of FC Barcelona 

Yamal is considered one of Europe's most promising young talents, even at the age of sixteen. He became the youngest player to represent Barcelona and quickly made a name for himself at Camp Nou.

With Neymar's €222 million move from Barcelona to PSG in 2017, Lamine Yamal would be the second most expensive acquisition in football history, having received a reported €200 million bid from PSG. Recent financial difficulties at Barcelona have resulted in the departure of a number of well-known players. Due to financial difficulties, Lionel Messi famously departed the team in 2021 and joined PSG.

The task of replacing Kylian Mbappe, who is recognised as one of the best forwards in the world of football, falls on PSG. With 34 goals and seven assists in 34 games across all competitions, the French captain has had an incredible season. According to reports, Mbappe has already signed a deal with Real Madrid, ending his six-year stay at PSG after he decided not to renew his contract with the French club.
