Former FC Barcelona midfield maestro turned Sporting Director and football agent Deco has dismissed rumours suggesting a potential move for Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappé, as reported by Foot Mercato.

Addressing the swirling speculation surrounding a possible Barcelona bid for Mbappé, Deco offered insights during an interview on Catalan radio station Esport3. He asserted, "We'll see.
