Laporta told the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo: “We received a crazy offer to include Gamal for about 200 million euros, and we rejected that offer, of course. We trust Gamal and do not want to sell him.”

He added, “We also received offers for Alejandro Balde, Fermin Lopez, Frenkie de Jong, Ronald Araujo and Javi. We do not want to sell our stars.”

He continued, “We do not want to sell any major player. If things go according to our plans, we will not have to sell any player.”

He concluded his speech by saying: “Of course, if any player wants to leave, we will not stand against him, but I am not at all worried about that. We want to keep the same team.”

Earlier, the Catalan club received an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for 200 million euros to sign Jamal, but Laporta rejected the offer.

If the deal is completed for this amount, it will be the second most expensive deal in history, as the first was also for the French club from Barcelona when it signed Neymar for 222 million euros.

The newspaper revealed that Nasser Al-Khelaifi is looking for a replacement for Kylian Mbappe, whose departure is imminent next summer when his contract expires, and Al-Khelaifi believes that the 16-year-old player is the best person to replace the French winger.

According to the newspaper, Jamal’s agent, Fakhrukhi Mendes, held a meeting with Barcelona’s management last week to discuss Paris Saint-Germain’s offer, but Laporta rejected the offer.
