Latest Barcelona News: Ousmane Dembele, a winger for Barcelona, is inching closer to signing for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, as revealed by Adrian Sanchez on Twitter. According to Sanchez, the transfer is ’95 percent done’.
Since the summer of 2021, when he reached the last year of his contract, the future of the 25-year-old has been the subject of considerable speculation and discussion. After declining the club’s offer in December, negotiations over a new contract were unable to proceed. Even though the Blaugrana attempted to get rid of him in January, he refused to quit the club.
It was because of this that he was temporarily cut out from the group until Xavi Hernandez invited Dembele back in. The French international turned up a string of strong performances in the second part of the season. This was a significant factor in Barcelona finishing in second place in La Liga thanks to his contributions.
Latest Barcelona News: Barcelona is in trouble regarding Ousmane Dembele
Because of his recent play, the club has resumed contract talks with Dembele’s agent to extend his contract. Since March, there have been multiple meetings conducted. Nevertheless, there has been no progress in the discussions. The two sides continue to be at odds with one another in terms of the demand and the offer.
Now, Dembele is nearing the last month of his contract with Barcelona. So, time is quickly running out for the Blaugrana. They are facing competition from other teams who are circling to make their move.
Paris Saint-Germain is one of those teams. They are quite interested in signing the winger, who is 25 years old. Since the January transfer window, when they supposedly established a verbal deal with the player, the French champions have had Dembele in their sights.
PSG is said to have recently held discussions with Dembele’s representatives. They want to bring the 25-year-old back to his native country as a potential replacement for Angel Di Maria. Di Maria is going to leave as a free agent.
Reason for PSG’s interest in Ousmane Dembele
Neymar’s future has also been the subject of considerable speculation as of late due to rumours that Paris Saint-Germain is mulling over the possibility of selling the Brazilian superstar. Therefore, the possibility of Dembele joining Parc des Princes is being considered.
And now, Adrian Sanchez is stating that the champion of the 2018 FIFA World Cup is very close to finalizing his transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. Executives at Barcelona are aware of this development as well.
Because his current deal is slated to expire on June 30, Dembele may soon become a free agent and go to the capital of France.
