Ousmane Dembele who arrived in the summer of 2017 for Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund has not agreed to extend his contract at the club according to several sources and the story between the parties will end almost completely.
The French player’s agent met with the club a little over a week ago and asked for very high sums for his client. Barça were stunned by the sums: 35-40 million euros salary per player, 10-15 million euros bonus for agent and another 30 million euros signing bonus for French player.
Before the meeting at the club they thought they were coming to talk to the agent about the final details to reach an agreement on Dembele’s contract but after the meeting they realized the story was probably over because Dembele’s camp said that if Barça wanted to see Dembele play a few more seasons at Camp Nou, they should accept their demands.
Although Dembele wanted to stay at the club after several talks with Xavi, sources say that his agent and camp convinced the player that Barcelona’s offer was low and that he should move to his next club in his career.
Sources say the club will of course not agree to these terms and the latest offer for Dembele was for them the final offer.
At the player’s camp they told the Barça Times that they do not see a way back in this story and that they have much higher offers than other clubs.
Sources said that in addition to clubs like (Man United, Newcastle and PSG), Chelsea are also very strong in the race following Dumboz who as mentioned had a close relationship with Thomas Tuchel in Dortmund.
The German coach of Chelsea wants to see Dembele in a team from London and sources said that the Blues are likely to offer the player a sufficient offer that could definitely interest Dembele’s camp.
