With a three-day recall on Ousmane Dembele’s contract with Barcelona, and there is still a cloud of uncertainty over his future. While his departure from the club seemed inevitable a few weeks ago, there have been reports of a possible renewal in recent days
No final bid for Dembele’s squad was made by Barcelona at the meeting held earlier today, Fabrizio Romano reports. The player will decide his future this week.
The Frenchman’s camp refuses to extend the contract unless the club makes a better offer. In the meantime, Blaugranas will take some time to assess their FFP status and determine whether they have enough room to accommodate the player’s demands. The winger has a renewal offer from the club from December worth €11 million per season. However, the club turned down the offer as they refused to accept and have now made an offer of €7.5 million instead.
PSG, Liverpool, Chelsea and Bayern Munich have never made direct offers to Dembele’s squad, despite their alleged interest. The only club to pursue him was the London-based side, but they, too, have always doubted his signing because of his salary.
