A run of hamstring injuries hampered his ability to stay on the pitch but it appears he has found a way to stay fit. He’s become an important player for manager Ronald Koeman.

As a result, Barcelona want to extend the player’s stay with the club as his contract expires in the summer of 2022.

According to Sport, the Catalans want to offer Dembélé a contract extension that would see him stay until 2025. With the renewal would come a wage increase but within the limits of the club’s wage bill.

Mateu Alemany, the new Director of Football, is set to meet with the player’s agent soon to present their offer.

Once the offer is presented, Barcelona are going to want to hear an answer soon. They do not want to enter next season with Dembélé’s future hanging over them. Should he not accept their offer, then the club will try to sell him during the summer.

While he has been linked to Juventus, Dembélé seems to want to succeed at Camp Nou. He’s had the opportunity to go somewhere else in the past. Before the start of the season, he was close to leaving to Manchester United on loan.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Dembélé’s priority is to stay with the Catalan giants. He feels like an important part of the team and is finally showing glimpses of what he showed at Dortmund.

Not only that but everyone whose opinion matters want him to stay. President Joan Laporta has stated how much he likes the player and Koeman himself said after the win against Real Valladolid he hopes Dembélé stays.
