While his name comes up regularly to serve as a bargaining chip, Ousmane Dembélé should finally be offered a contract extension by Barcelona leaders.
It’s a small event: the season started more than two months ago and Ousmane Dembele still did not go to the infirmary of the FC Barcelona. After being on the flank for nearly six months due to a tendon strain in his thigh at the start of the year, his tenth injury since his arrival in Catalonia in the summer of 2017, the Frenchman finally has a series of appearances with Barça .
With some success, since if the former Rennais often had to be content with a substitute status at the start of the season, he has 3 goals and 2 assists in his 8 matches played with the Blaugrana. What even attract some praise. “I really like Ousmane Dembélé. He’s a boy who hasn’t had luck with injuries, but who has enormous potential, ”Luis Figo told him about him, seeing the Frenchman as one of the players who most resembles him.
This good start to the season has not escaped Ronald Koeman, as well as his leaders. So much so that to believe Mundo Deportivo, Barça would like to see the tricolor world champion extend his lease in Catalonia. While the contract of the native of Evreux ends in 2022, discussions have recently been initiated to move forward on the subject. Good news for Barcelona’s No.11 even though there is no doubt that the results of the next presidential elections, on November 24, will inevitably weigh on his future. Several voices in Catalonia have indeed been raised in recent months to demand his departure, the fruit of his possible transfer being able to be used to recruit the players desired by Ronald Koeman.
