Dembele Asked to Leave Barca by the End of the Month

Spanish La Liga top side Barcelona has told Ousmane Dembele he must leave this month because he is “not committed to the project”. Earlier today the head coach of the club Xavi asked the French star to pen down a new contract but the player has not said anything about it. 

Barca Orders Ousmane Dembele Leave the Club by the End of the Month

Dembele is a free agent at the end of the season and has repeatedly turned down the offer of a new deal with the club. The Frenchman joined Barcelona from German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in 2017 in a deal worth up to £135.5m but will be able to leave for nothing when his contract expires.

Director of football of the club Mateu Alemany said”: It seems obvious that the player does not want to continue at Barca.” Barcelona head coach Xavi has already warned Dembele he must sign a new contract or leave the club. Alemany said the club supports Xavi and agrees it is “absolutely the correct approach”, with lengthy contract talks failing to reach an agreement.

H”e also said: “With Ousmane and his agent we began [contract] conversations around July so it’s been six months and a bit.” “We’ve talked, we’ve talked, we’ve talked. Barca has made different offers.” “We’ve tried to find a way for the player to continue with us but these offers have been systematically rejected by his agents.”

“In this scenario, he and his agents have been informed that he must leave immediately because we want players committed to this project and therefore we hope that a transfer will take place before January 31.” Dembele was the club’s second most expensive player when he joined the club but injuries had the better part of the player’s time at Nou Camp. According to reports, the likes of Manchester United, Newcastle and Liverpool have all shown interest in the player.
