Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly keen on Barcelona's Lamine yamal and have devised a plan to make it happen.

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are reportedly targeting Barcelona's rising star, Lamine Yamal, as a priority signing over the summer in their quest to fill the void left by the departing Kylian Mbappé. 

According to Le Parisien, the sixteen-year-old sensation has caught the attention of PSG following his impressive performances, particularly in Barcelona's European campaign.

Yamal's emergence as one of Europe's most promising talents has put him in the spotlight, and PSG is eager to lure him away from the Catalans. 

With significant financial resources at their disposal after offloading high-wage players like Neymar, Lionel Messi last summer, and the margin they will create from Mbappe’s departure, PSG are poised to make a substantial offer for the young prodigy in the upcoming transfer window.

PSG's plan

Despite the reported €1 billion buyout clause in Yamal's contract, signalling Barcelona's reluctance to part ways with their prized asset, PSG remains optimistic. 

Le Parisien suggests that PSG is banking on their strong relationship with Yamal's agent, Jorge Mendes, to sway negotiations in their favour. Mendes, who shares a close bond with PSG's sporting director Luis Campos, could play a crucial role in convincing Yamal to consider a move to the French capital. 

PSG hopes that Yamal's desire for a new challenge combined with Mendes' influence could prompt Barcelona to entertain an offer in the range of €200 million for the talented teenager.
