Sport Primera Division: Barca dream of Mbappe and Haaland
Mbappe further away from Madrid than ever, says Valdano
Real Madrid should not expect to be in the running for Kylian Mbappe, despite the France star's heroics as PSG thrashed Barcelona.Mbappe netted a stunning hat-trick as Paris Saint-Germain thrashed an overmatched Barca 4-1 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.
presidential candidate Toni Freixa has promised FC Barcelona that Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe will be signed if he emerges victorious in the March 7 election.
"Sign Haaland and Mbappe? It's absolutely possible and that's exactly what Barca have to do: sign players of this caliber," Freixa told RAC1 .

Freixa thus boosted the election campaign for the office of president at the financially badly battered FC Barcelona and also promised a cash injection of 250 million euros.
the money is said to come from an undisclosed investor who wants to get into the Barca Corporate project. "Two different players for the offensive area and a strong central defender," according to Freixa.
Freixa preferred to leave it open whether this could really be Haaland and Mbappe. "Our maxim is that we don't talk about players until we present them," said Freixa, who saw this as a bad strategy and a negotiating advantage for other clubs.
