Barcelona stall in last minute Ousmane Dembele talks

Barcelona appear to be edging away from renewing Ousmane Dembele’s expiring contract.

Dembele’s agent Moussa Sissoko has arrived in Catalonia ahead of a crucial week of talks with the La Blaugrana board.

The French international is out of contract at the Camp Nou in four days time with time running out to reach an agreement.

However, despite fleeting optimism over securing personal terms for the 25-year-old, negotiations have hit a stumbling block in the last 24 hours.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims Barcelona have not made a final offer to Dembele with an update on the progress expected tomorrow.

Dembele’s representatives have made clear their expectation of improved contract terms for their client with Barcelona unwilling to match the requests.

The ongoing financial issues at Barcelona are playing a role in the indecision, but there is a lack of consensus on whether an improved deal is deserved, despite his positive form in 2022.

  1. I’m a Barca fan. Just cut him loose. We don’t need greedy bastards that have barely played for years. Shame, he could have been a great player with better attitude.

    1. Anyone who has donned the Barca jersey deserves respect dlfrom all cules. Football is business today, players don’t take footballing decisions but financial decisions in football. Let Dembele decide what is best for him and his family. Barca shall be there with or without him. Yhank Dembele for keeping us in the CL……all the best

      1. we agree that dembele is great player but I don’t think Barcelona can stop playing without him okay

  2. I am a Barca fan.
    He need to show maturity and support a team that has financial issues. Time heals, he should not forget.
    If he doesn’t, he will not do well anywhere after all. Barca is the best place to be.

  3. He better leave if FCB can’t afford his demands. He’s a great player for tho, but prone to injuries, I guess he improves his game & off field attitude because of the hefty fee he wants. Raphinha, Anthony, David Neres is better & at with lower wages! If he got the wages he deemed for at Barca he will then continue with his faking injuries, late to training & won’t play up to expectation anymore like he did in the second half of the season. FCB should consider all this & his injury stats before giving him an improved contract!
