On the departure of FC Barcelona in recent weeks, Ousmane Dembélé could surprise everyone by extending in Catalonia.
And if finally, Ousmane Dembélé ended up extending to FC Barcelona. What seemed improbable or even impossible a few weeks ago could happen, according to information from L’Equipe. Indeed, the national daily reveals in its edition of the day that despite the interests of Paris Saint-Germain but also of Chelsea, Ousmane Dembélé could extend to Barcelona. And for good reason, there would not be such a big gap between the demands of the Dembélé clan and the latest proposal from Barcelona President Joan Laporta. As a reminder, Moussa Sissoko, the agent of the twirling winger of Barça, demands a salary of 20 million euros net annually and a signing bonus of 40 million euros for Ousmane Dembélé.
Agreement not so distant between Barça and Dembélé?
Xavi who praised Ousmane Dembélé so much, is now criticized by the player’s agent in the press🤦♂️

The exact figures of FC Barcelona’s offer have not filtered out but the gap would not be impossible to fill with the demands of Moussa Sissoko. If an agreement could be found, Ousmane Dembélé would then become the biggest contract of the current FC Barcelona squad. Suffice to say that despite a very delicate financial context, Barça is going all out and proving its attachment to the player. But nothing has yet been won for the Spanish club, which must deal with fierce competition in this matter. And for good reason, L’Equipe recalls that Paris SG is still watching this file with interest. But above all, Chelsea is manifesting itself more and more. Thomas Tuchel, who had already checked the name of Dembélé when he was at Paris SG, would be very hot at the idea of recovering the one he had under his management with Borussia Dortmund. It now remains to be seen if Barça will manage to extend their French international and thus get rid of insane competition for Ousmane Dembélé.
