At the end of the contract in June, Ousmane Dembélé (25 years old, 31 games and 2 goals in all competitions this season) wishes to stay at FC Barcelona this summer. Problem, the positions of the two parties are very far apart and there is nothing to confirm that the French winger is extending his lease in Catalonia over the next few weeks.
The situation has not escaped Paris Saint-Germain, which had generated contact with the Dembélé clan a few months ago. According to information from Foot Mercato, Parisian President Nasser Al-Khelafi has moved up a gear by talking with the Barcelona agent in recent hours to discuss the arrival of the former Rennais at PSG. The native of Vernon would be the priority of the Qatari leader to replace Angel Di Maria, whose departure at the end of the contract was formalized on Friday (see here).
Paris SG will now have to find the right arguments to convince Dembélé to give up on Barça and return to France. Kylian Mbappé’s expected extension is a first strong signal sent.
