While Ousmane Dembélé's contract will expire on June 30, FC Barcelona is reportedly in the process of finding common ground with his entourage to extend it.

Ousmane Dembélé arrived at FC Barcelona during the 2017 summer transfer window, and is still linked to the Catalan club with the contract he signed a little over four years ago. And precisely, it will expire on June 30th. As a result, the 24-year-old French international is heading straight for a free start at the end of the season. However, both for sporting and economic reasons – the idea being not to see Ousmane Dembélé go away for free even though he has a good market value, Barça is said to be speeding up with a view to extending his contract and thus unlocking a file that has been paralyzed for several weeks now.

Several meetings are scheduled for the extension of Ousmane Dembélé

In this sense, ESPN assures this Monday, after consulting sources, that FC Barcelona is currently pushing to renew the commitment of Ousmane Dembélé . Specifically, the negations between the two parties have intensified in recent weeks and several meetings are expected over the next few days. These interviews should also be decisive for the rest of the case if we are to believe the media, which adds that Barça is relatively confident about his chances of completing the case. Indeed, within the Blaugrana club, the probability of an extension of Ousmane Dembélé is currently considered to be 50%. A low figure, but that should nevertheless be qualified, insofar as the management chaired by Joan Laporta would know that the former player of Borussia Dortmund and < strong> Stade Rennais thrives at Camp Nou .

The whole question now is to know what turn the negotiations will take. However, it is clear that the case is currently a priority for FC Barcelona according to the echoes reported by ESPN. According to sources from the Barcelona team, “the continuity of Ousmane Dembélé is strategic for the team”, both because of his young age and because of his unique profile in the Barça squad., namely that of a technical and fast striker. Nevertheless, ESPN makes it clear that the club founded in 1899 is far from being the only one to be under the spell of the winner of the World Cup 2018.

The specter of a start level above FC Barcelona

Above-average quality of dribbling, speed, explosiveness … Despite his repeated injuries in recent years, Ousmane Dembélé retains a good rating on the transfer market. The FC Barcelona ESPN is well aware of this, since he would know that the native of Vernon could have many other tempting offers at the end of his contract to continue his career outside of Catalonia, since he has a very popular profile. As a result, the specter of the departure of Ilaix Moriba would hover over FC Barcelona with Ousmane Dembélé . The 18-year-old midfielder had effectively left Barça during the last summer transfer window against his will to take charge of RB Leipzig, after having listened to the advice of its representatives. This scenario, this time in the context of a free start, will it happen again with a Ousmane Dembélé, whose agent seems to delay the project of his extension for several weeks? The FC Barcelona will be quickly fixed after the meetings of the next few days.
