The exodus seems to have no end. Now they say that Dembelé could go to England.
The exit door is still open in Lionel Messi’s Barcelona, the product of Ronald Koeman’s decision to dispense with several players. Among them, some of weight who have already achieved a new club, such as the cases of Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal. Luis Suárez would also have his landing at Atlético de Madrid arranged after his move to Juventus was frustrated and, in the middle of other games, the rumor grows that another player could leave: Ousmane Dembelé.
That of the French is a more than particular case for the Catalan team. Because the 23-year-old forward is in Manchester United’s plans, according to the English press. And although it is taken into account by Koeman, the Barcelona leadership – eager for fresh money – would not see with bad eyes getting rid of him.
From the Old Continent they point out that the intention of the Catalans is to negotiate it yes or yes, with a direct sale or a loan with a future purchase option. Of course: they intend to recover the investment made three years ago, when they paid him 105 million euros Borussia Dortmund for a player who promised.
Although he is very young, with many years of experience ahead of him, Dembelé did not manage to fit in in Barcelona, where he has a contract until June 2022. He was not up to the task when he had opportunities and, to top it all, suffered several injuries that impaired his performance and continuity.
We will then have to wait to see if United makes a specific offer for their services and if Barcelona, which is simultaneously looking for a man to reinforce its lead, ends up shedding him.
