Barcelona boss Koeman: Of course I'd be interested in Mbappe, Neymar

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman admits he'd welcome PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to the Nou Camp.

Koeman was responding to PSG chief Leonardo admitting interest in Barca captain Lionel Messi.

"If you also ask me if I have interest in Neymar or [Kylian] Mbappe, I would say yes," Koeman said during Wednesday's pre-match press conference.

Messi received his first-ever red card for Barcelona in the Supercopa de Espana final, so has the Dutch coach noticed anything different about him in training in the last few days?

"Leo has trained very hard. I haven't seen anything unusual about him," Koeman confirmed.

"Everyone was sad about the result of the final, but we kept going. We are on the way to improving things. The game... in defence we have to improve. Leo is very involved."
