Xavi may well be convinced that his winger will listen to reason and extend his contract at Barça, Ousmane Dembélé is getting closer every day to the exit.
The tricolor international has not extended to FC Barcelona, and he does not seem to be really looking to find an agreement to do so. The Catalan club continues to court him to prevent him from going free in June, but the socios have already dropped the case, and the jackets are turning for the one who had arrived from Dortmund with the enormous ambition to take the place of Neymar. Five years later, it is a resounding failure on the sporting and financial level, because the amount of his transfer has not been amortized at all. And a departure for 0 euro will hurt even more. Especially when Barcelona’s leaders see the emerging destination.
PSG alone on the track for Dembélé, it’s possible
True✅ Ousmane Dembélé demanded for a new contract an annual salary of € 43 Mio at @FCBarcelona, a bonus of € 5 Mio when winning the UCL and € 2 Mio for the championship. That why Barcelona want to sell him in January

Indeed in recent days, rumors of an interest from Bayern Munich have flourished, but Bild has showered everyone by announcing that none of this was true. Rather, it was an agent game to raise the ante, as Bayern Munich are still trying to extend Kingsley Coman’s contract, and now even seem confident to do so. Result, the PSG would simply be alone in the list to recover Ousmane Dembélé. Very attracted by the Premier League, the French winger has so far not hit the mark on the other side of the Channel. Result, if the Parisian leaders especially plan to recruit a leading player like Erling Haaland if ever Mbappé were to leave for Real Madrid, the idea of bringing Ousmane Dembélé for free would delight Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. And the fact that he comes from Barcelona, a year after Lionel Messi, would not displease him either.
