Considering the form Kylian Mbappe is in, it does not seem like it will be an easy job luring him away from the French capital.

He has been unstoppable this season, scoring and assisting in huge numbers for the French giants.

It will only take an offer comprising of Coutinho and a large sum of money for Barcelona to get his signature.

Barcelona will gain if the deal happens

Barcelona will surely gain if Mbappe is brought into their ranks, as he is much better than Coutinho at the moment, and the Brazilian seems to have already stunted at Barcelona.

With his immaculate speed, he will add a certain flair to Barcelona's attack coupled with compatriot Dembele.

With Messi and Suarez aging, it will be a blessing for Barca if the deal happens.

In 2018-19, the French sensation has managed to score 13 goals in 12 league appearances already, whereas, he managed 13 goals from 27 league appearances last season.

Coutinho going through a rough phase presently

£142 million was what Barcelona spent for the Brazilian megastar in 2017, but his form has massively dropped this season, and he's scored only five goals so far.

Barcelona fans have also vocally sounded their disapproval, instead preferring Ousmane Dembele as a starting XI member.

If he joins PSG, Coutinho could also be reunited with compatriot Neymar.

Only time will tell what's in store for him.
