In a matter of a month and a half, FC Barcelona's speech with Ousmane Dembélé has changed drastically and the position is clear: the Frenchman will not play if he does not renew the agreement with the Catalans
The FC Barcelona has left very clear that Ousmane Dembélé will have to look for a new team in eleven days after the French announced to the directors that does not have intention any to extend his stay in the Camp Nou further of 30 June of this year. From the club, have aimed that they do not want to a player that does not have commitment with the entity culé.
Between Xavi Hernández and Mateu Alemany have given the news. During the afternoon of the Wednesday, in press conference, the trainer egarense aimed that "or renews or will look for him an exit. At the end the club has decided that if it does not renew it is necessary to look for a solution. We have to do what him better go to the club. We are in a situation in which we have to stop in dry. Five months ago that Mateu Alemany converses with him and his representatives".
The director of football, Alemany, pronounced this Wednesday and left a powerful dart to the French, confirming that has the door of exit of the Camp Nou open and that it has to begin to do plans immediately to abandon the team. The ex of Valencia commented for the official means of the Barça that "the reality is that with Ousmane five months ago that begin the negotiations with his agents, during this time there has been a continuous communication in which the posture of the club has been the one to want his continuity".
It added, besides, that "have done him different offers, have been very on of this subject, have done the sufficient so that the player consider what has to do with his future". In this sense, the position of the Barça is very clear and exclude to the French of his plans if it does not renew his agreement, but... It has changed the speech in Can Barça? As yes! And everything in question of month and half.
"If [Dembélé] has agreement, has to play. Also by image of the own club. I do not contemplate this option [to send it to the terracing]", said Xavi Hernández, trainer of the FC Barcelona, in the previous of the party of the Barcelona against the Real Betis, the past three December. A totally distinct message to the that give from the Camp Nou during this month of January.
It remains to ask if, really, the decision of not having Dembélé will have sportive weight, especially when -is not a secret for anybody- Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres and Martin Braithwaite are not to 100%, after being recovering of his respective injuries. Everything aims to that the 'bombazo' will extend by more days and that, in question, Dembélé will not abandon the Camp Nou in this month of January.
Dembélé Does not pose go out
The big problem of the Barça is that Dembélé wants to fulfil with his agreement and leave like free agent in July. Like this it happened, for example, with Eric García and Memphis Depay in the past season (arrived to the Camp Nou after culminating his bonds) and Leo Messi, the one who could not renew his agreement with the culés and went out by the rear door.
In any case, will repeat the case of a sinfín of players, but in this opportunity the Barça does not benefit : "I Forbid to any one speak by me or by my representative, in the one who trust totally. I am fully involved and disposal of the club and of my trainer. Always I have given it all and this does not go to change", stood out the French in a communiqué that issued through his social networks this Thursday.
