The Catalan press is over the moon! Sport or Mundo Deportivo announce together this Saturday evening that Ousmane Dembélé should extend his contract at FC Barcelona for two more years.
Without a club for 48 hours after the end of his contract at FC Barcelona, Ousmane Dembélé was not going to stay on the market for very long. But, apart from Chelsea, he has not received many real offers and everything seems to lead him to continue the adventure in Catalonia. The Dembélé clan spoke again with the Barcelona management and Mateu Alemany last Monday. It has been constructive and both parties are close to an agreement to renew a contract at FC Barcelona.

Dembélé at Barça until 2024 but with a salary at half mast
This is announced by a good part of the Catalan press this Saturday evening, and in particular the daily Sport. The player is in a hurry to finish the case and wants to quickly prepare for the next exercise under Xavi’s orders. The sensitive point of the discussions concerned the future salary of the former Rennes player. An agreement has been reached for a reduction in the amount of the player’s annual remuneration. Dembélé will go from 11 million euros a year to six million in his future contract which runs until June 2024, two more years with the Blaugranas. Above all, Ousmane Dembélé wants to be able to continue in the club, something that is certain in Barcelona with the confidence of Xavi, to be able to return to Didier Deschamps’ plans for the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year.
