Dembele is moving away from a new contract with Barcelona
Negotiations between Usman Dembele and Barcelona seem to have hit rock bottom and there is more likely to be an agreement between the two countries to extend the contract, said journalist Fabrizio Romano, citing his colleague Gerard Romero. The current contract of the 24-year-old wing with the Catalans expires on June 30, 2022.
Today there was a meeting between the agent of Dembele and Barcelona, where the Catalans were told that the Frenchman will stay only if the club offers him the required salary, writes Romano, adding that the player is reluctant to compromise and the situation it becomes quite complicated.
In a separate tweet, the Italian journalist claims that Dembele has already received two serious offers, including a large salary, from two clubs in the English Premier League.
Dembele has only 8 games in all Barça tournaments this season, recording 2 assists in all.
