Ousmane Dembele transfer

Dembele has earned 37 international caps for France

Barcelona’s forward Ousmane Dembele is set to become a Paris St-Germain player, confirms Barcelona’s head coach, Xavi.

The 26-year-old French player didn’t participate in Barcelona’s 1-0 pre-season victory against AC Milan in Las Vegas this Wednesday.

“Dembele has shared that he has an offer and made up his mind to move on. This is entirely his personal choice,” Xavi expressed.

Since transferring from Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona for a fee of £135m in 2017, Dembele has netted 40 times in 185 appearances.

Xavi stated unambiguously, “Dembele has been upfront about having a deal from Paris St-Germain, stating they approached him directly. We’re powerless in this situation, and that’s why he wasn’t on the field today.

“It’s disappointing for me because I believe we’ve done our utmost here to ensure his satisfaction and continual impact for our team.”

Dembele committed his future to Barcelona last year with a two-year contract extension, after a season where he was La Liga’s top assist provider.

During the World Cup final in December, Dembele was a key player for the French team. However, due to a thigh injury, he missed a significant part of the season’s second half, during which Barcelona clinched the championship title.

In the recent 3-0 victory over Real Madrid in Dallas, during the second game of their pre-season American tour, Dembele managed to find the back of the net.

Paris St-Germain has dominated French football, clinching the Ligue 1 title nine times in the previous 11 seasons.
