- The French winger is two days away from the end of his contract and Xavi made it clear yesterday that “his renewal depends on him”
The Frenchman, Ousmane Dembélé (25 years old), has to make a decision soon about his future. There are two days left until his contract with Barça ends and there is still no official response to the renewal offer, but at the Barça club they still trust that the winger will end up accepting to continue at the Camp Nou and give the go-ahead to the proposal that is on the table.
Dembélé knows that he has the maximum confidence of Xavi Hernández to be an important piece in the squad for next season and that the coach would welcome his continuity. The proof is that last season he had him despite his uncertain contractual situation.
Last Monday there was a meeting between the senior officials of the Barça sports management with his representative Moussa Sissoko , but yesterday there were no more contacts between the two parties about the possible renewal of the footballer and this couple of days will be definitive to know the future of Dembélé . Before heading to Ibiza to spend the last days of vacation before the start of the season, Xavi assured in Mega that Dembélé ‘s renewal “depends on him”. In this way the culé coach makes it clear that OusmaneHe already has the offer on the table and if he wants to continue at the club, as he reiterates in private, he must accept the renewal offer that the club made at the time. In the club they trust that this gesture will take place.
In the economic field, Dembélé is at Barça with a renewal offer according to the club’s delicate economy and has to study a better proposal from Chelsea , but the latest information coming from England indicates that the Londoners would be more interested in signing the Brazilian Raphinha (25 years old), who also appears on the culé agenda.
