The Blaugranas seemed like an aimless team a few months ago, but everything changed when Joan Laporta returned to the presidency. They begin to take shape and the future looks bright little by little, although to achieve this they need to make several movements, including the one in which the Barcelona seeks to renew Ousmane Dembélé.
The electoral campaign delayed that process.
Since the end of 2020, the team was having serious problems both on the board and on the pitch and it was obvious that they had to go in parts. First they need to fix the problems in the presidency and then, start seeing renewals, extensions and new signings.
Laporta wasted no time and started with everything from the moment he was appointed president again. He said that the priority was and continues to be to retain Lionel Messi, in addition to the rumor that he had talks with Sergio Agüero to sign it in summer.

Now, Dembélé is also on that list of priorities.
The Frenchman had not convinced the fans in his early years as a Blaugrana player, as injuries had been a constant, but little by little he has shown that he can be an important factor. He currently has 10 goals in all competitions this season plus 4 assists.
“Ousmane is an important player. His career has been very good and physically he has improved a lot. I think it has been the key to his consistency. If it’s up to me, of course I’d like him to stay”, Ronald Koeman commented on the possibility of retaining the Frenchman.

For this reason, Barcelona seeks to renew Ousmane Dembélé.
The idea is to present a proposal for three seasons extendable to another two, although it must be with a starting salary not so high, due to the difficult economic reality of the club, but with the option of increasing the salary in the future.
