Last night it was reported that Barcelona superstar, Ousmane Dembele, was plotting a move away to Paris Saint-Germain. Not only would this hurt the team, because he has been playing phenomenally, but it would also hurt the club financially. The French international was brought into the club for a hefty fee of 100 million euros and to lose him on a free transfer would be devastating for the club. Barca tried to sell the player back in January after negotiations fell apart however, Dembele was not ready to move to any other club, leaving the Catalans feeling a bit helpless. Now, he has revived his true form and has become an important player for the first team.
Dembele’s main desire or demand was a bigger wage structure than the one that was being offered by the Catalans. He also wanted a big signing on bonus and that was something that Barca could just not afford. The player now has just a hundred days left before he leaves the club for free but the Blaugrana side is trying hard to renegotiate a new contract. Despite what the reports might say, and despite interest from other teams, Dembele is dedicated to Barca and that shows us that he has a genuine love for the club.
Barcelona star could stay back at the club as negotiations look set to reopen
According to El Chiringito, the player is ready to renegotiate a contract with Barcelona and he is ready to offer lower wages as well. He still wants a signing on bonus but he will keep Barca as the top priority. This change of heart is probably due to the fact that Xavi Hernandez put immense trust in him and he feels like he could go on to be one of the fundamental players in the team. However, nothing is of certainty now and we won’t know what is going on for sure until and unless we get an official report from the player or the club.
Do you think that Dembele will stay at the club past this season? Let us know in the comments down below.
