Long announced close to Paris Saint-Germain, Ousmane Dembélé is not favored by football adviser Luis Campos. This refusal has apparently changed the plans of the winger at the end of the contract, now ready to extend under the conditions of FC Barcelona.
Ousmane Dembélé had announced the color. Arrested by a supporter in his car last week, the winger at the end of the contract assured that he would stay at FC Barcelona. His improvised declaration inevitably surprised in view of the tensions with its leaders, whose last offer of extension did not even receive a response. This shows how far apart the positions of the two parties are. But the situation has visibly changed if we are to believe the Frenchman, forced to review his plans because of Paris Saint-Germain.

As revealed by the daily Le Parisien, the new football adviser Luis Campos did not validate the track leading to Ousmane Dembélé, while his predecessor Leonardo had started discussions. The former Borussia Dortmund player probably saw himself in the Parisian jersey, hence the conflict with Barça. But according to information collected by journalist Fabien Guyon, the Blaugrana have lost all hope of signing for Paris Saint-Germain. And insofar as no other track seems to stand out, Ousmane Dembélé would therefore have left to extend his contract at FC Barcelona.
Dembele will have to make an effort
There is currently no agreement between the tricolor international and the Catalan club. But we can think that the discussions will resume and that the player’s clan will lower its requirements. To believe that the winger trained at Stade Rennais, despite his contractual situation, is no longer really in a position of strength. It remains to be seen whether Barça has not already recorded his departure, the target Raphinha being intended to replace him in the workforce of Xavi next season.
