FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta has spoken about the extension of Ousmane Dembélé, whose contract ends in just a few months.
This is the hot topic of the moment at FC Barcelona . While Xavi absolutely wants to keep him, Ousmane Dembélé is dangerously close to the end of his contract. From 1 January he will already be able to negotiate with other clubs and several are interested in the Premier League, such as Manchester United and Newcastle. However, the Catalan press is very pessimistic this Thursday on this subject. SPORT indeed announces that Dembélé should spin next June without Barça pocketing a single penny, while Mundo Deportivo ensures that his agent would not push at all for an extension … but rather for a departure abroad.
“His extension? It's a slower process than we would have hoped, but we are still working on it ”
On the sidelines of an event this Thursday, Joan Laporta was intercepted by several media which questioned him on the future of Ousmane Dembélé at FC Barcelona. “He's a very important player. He can bring us a lot more than he has been able to do so far and if he continues to play here, he could become a real reference ”explained the president of Barça, at the microphone of the Cadena COPE. “His extension? It's a slower process than one would have hoped, but we are still working on it. ”
