Out of contract with FC Barcelona at the end of the season, Ousmane Dembélé is the subject of many desires in the transfer window.
Author of a good performance against Celta Vigo on Tuesday evening (3-1), Ousmane Dembélé does not yet know what his future will hold. And for good reason, the French international of FC Barcelona will be out of contract in June and for the time being, no final decision has been made. In recent weeks, his entourage has spoken with many clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain. The reigning French champion would like to enlist Ousmane Dembélé in order to compensate for the probable departure of Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid. But according to El Larguero in Spain, the leaders of FC Barcelona have still not said their last word in this matter. And for good reason, Xavi has made the extension of Ousmane Dembélé a priority, which encourages its president Joan Laporta to try everything to convince the former Rennais to extend in Catalonia.
Barça have ideas for the extension of Dembélé
The Spanish media understands that a new meeting will be held next week between the agents of Ousmane Dembélé and FC Barcelona. For the Catalan leaders, the objective is obviously to find common ground quickly with Moussa Sissoko, Ousmane Dembélé’s agent, as part of a contract extension. The media reveals that Barcelona could try several approaches to convince the Dembélé clan. Joan Laporta’s first idea would be to offer Ousmane Dembélé a lower salary than what he is asking for in the first year, before this salary increases over the years of the contract. The other option which is very popular with Barça but which will perhaps please Ousmane Dembélé a little less is that of a variable salary depending on the performance of the players. Indeed, Barça would like Dembélé’s salary to depend on his efficiency (goals, assists) but above all on his presence (number of games played) on the pitch. Ideas to dig into and which will be debated during the next meetings between FC Barcelona and the entourage of Ousmane Dembélé. With the hope of the Barcelona side not to change the situation in the right direction.
