Barcelona fans have their say on De Jong-Araújo for Kylian Mbappé chatter

Supporters of La Liga giants Barcelona have provided their collective take on the fresh chatter surrounding Kylian Mbappé’s hypothetical arrival at the club this summer.

This comes after Blaugrana sporting director Deco was drawn on the prospect of as much on Wednesday night.

During an interview with Jijantes, Deco was asked asked for his thoughts on a hypothetical scenario, in which Barcelona parted ways with both Frenkie de Jong and Ronald Araújo, to fund a swoop for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Mbappé.

The Portuguese, however, was quick to pour cold water on the subject, adamant that any such move would only succeed in making the Catalans ‘worse’:

“Selling Frenkie de Jong and Araújo and bringing in Mbappé would be a mistake and would make the team worse.”

Whilst Barcelona’s sporting director is evidently against such a hypothetical, though, how do the club’s fans feel?

As much was explored by Diario Sport on Thursday, courtesy of a poll.

The question put simply to the Blaugrana faithful was: ‘Would you sell Araujo and de Jong to sign Mbappé?’

And the results to date, point towards the majority as being in agreement with Deco when it comes to the likely effect such a move would have.

This comes with 58% having voted ‘no’, and 42% ‘yes’.
