Placed ahead of Kylian Mbappé on FC Barcelona’s priority list in the summer of 2017 when it was time to find a replacement for Brazilian Neymar, the culé bet on French winger Ousmane Dembélé can be classified as failed. At least, to date. And it is that the 130 M € that were paid to Borussia Dortmund for its incorporation have not yet had an effect on the pitch.
Accompanied by a more than remarkable number of injuries since his landing, the 23-year-old footballer has played a total of 82 official matches (22 goals, 17 assists) in which he has delivered a sawtooth performance. In this situation, several are the times in which the whole of the city has tried to find accommodation.
The end of his contract, in 2022
Offered to PSG itself as a bargaining chip to bring the signing of Neymar closer to 2019, last summer the door was opened to the possibility that the world champion had left on loan to Manchester United. However, finally none of the doors that have been opened have finished being used.
In this situation, and as transmitted by the information published by Sport, within the FC Barcelona there is a certain fear regarding the future of Ousmane Dembélé. And it is that the aforementioned source collects that the culé team thinks that the French international plans to fulfill his contract until next June 30, 2022 and later leave with the freedom letter under his arm in search of a new challenge.
Given that at the time his contract with FC Barcelona expires the player will still be at an ideal age to shine (he will barely be 25 years old), there is no doubt that there will be several teams that knock on his door and are willing to put a significant amount on the table as a token. Will the Barça team see how one of its great millionaire bets leaves for free in a year and a half?
