Barça almost gives up Dembélé and plans the next season without him

After the last and disappointing meeting with Moussa Sissoko, representative of Ousmane Dembélé, Barcelona practically lost the French striker and has already started planning next season without him.

Sources from the Barça entity confirmed to EFE that the meeting, which was held this Wednesday afternoon, did not unfold as expected after the player’s agent came down asking for financial claims that the club considers out of the market right now. .

The same sources announced that the technical direction will work from now on, assuming that the Frenchman will no longer be on the squad next year. So the best solution for both parties would be to be able to transfer it to another team in this winter market.

The Catalan club is very disappointed with Dembélé, who has been more in the news for chaining minor lack of discipline and having been injured for half of the four and a half seasons he has been at Barcelona than for his performance on the pitch.

Even so, the entity had decided to make him one of the pillars of its new project – Laporta said of Dembélé that he was better than Mbappé and Xavi that he could become the best in the world in his position – and has spent five months negotiating with him the renewal.

A period in which Dembélé has always expressed to the coach and sports management his desire to continue at Barça, a message that contradicts the way the negotiations have been developing.

After the last meeting, Barcelona is quite clear that Ousmane Dembélé will not continue and, after the negotiations practically broke up yesterday, all possible scenarios are opened, including that the player will never wear the Barça shirt again.

For now, the winger, confining himself to his home after having tested positive for coronavirus, will not be able to play the league match next Sunday against Mallorca in Son Moix.

The downward renewal of Dembélé was a strategic operation of the club, not only for the future but also for the present to lighten the salary mass and thus be able to register Ferran Torres in LaLiga.

But the French winger does not understand why he must now give up his claims to help the club financially, when it has just spent 55 million euros plus variables to sign a footballer who also plays in the same position.

However, Barça has always made it clear to him that Torres, who can adapt to any attacking position, was not coming to compete with him for a position, but to reinforce the team’s lead and that both were completely complementary players.

The fact is that, as of January 1, Ousmane Dembéle will enter his last six months of contract with Barcelona, ​​which means that he will be able to freely negotiate with any other club.

In the Camp Nou they practically give up for lost and now they will have to look for new solutions to lighten the salary mass that allows them to comply with the financial ‘fair-play’.

What would happen to achieve that players like Samuel Umtiti or Philippe Coutinho, with a really high profile that contrasts with their poor performance, dissociated themselves from the entity in this winter market.
