Barcelona leave Dembele no choice

Barcelona leave Dembele no choice

Ousmane Dembele will receive ultimatum from Barcelona. He will either extend his contract with the club or leave.

A difficult situation has arisen around Ousmane Dembele. The French winger still does not know how to respond to Barcelona. The fact is that the Spanish giants offered a new contract to the footballer, but Dembele's representatives ignore the offer and do not come into contact with the club.

Based on this, Barca are going to sell the player, since the current contract of Ousmane is designed until 2022. The money raised for the winger will clearly not be superfluous, given the current state of affairs of the La Liga bronze medalists.

But at the same time, Laporta and the company do not want to part with the midfielder. Last season, Dembele played 44 matches in total, and he has 11 goals and five assists in his asset. Nevertheless, the management is counting on the player, but fears that his requests for salarywill be too high. The Spanish newspaper Diario Sport writes about this.

I still believe that Dembele is not even half the replacement for Neymar or Messi on the attacking wings, as he was seen at Borussia. Yes, in four seasons, Barca moved away from the game of Luis Enrique, but these are far from the results that were expected from the winger. If we add to this constant injuries of Ousmane and unstable game, then the transfer can be called a failure.

What can you say, if Ansu Fati, a guy from the youth team, played only ten matches and made nine efficient actions. If it were not for the injury of the Spaniard, then Dembele could have been forgotten. But the reality is that the club believes in the Frenchman and hopes that he will get in shape. In addition, the management clearly understands that it will not be possible to score even half of the 135 million euros spent on him. This is influenced by both Ousmane’s shape and the remaining year of the contract. And finding a worthy replacement for him will be very expensive.
