Ousmane Dembélé was the great absentee in the visit of FC Barcelona to Cádiz for the penultimate day of LaLiga. Ferran Torres played on the far right and left the Frenchman without opportunities
One of the big novelties of the alignment of the FC Barcelona to confront to the Getafe, this Sunday by the penultimate day of LaLiga Santander 2021-2022, went the absence of Ousmane Dembélé, the one who saw all the party from the bench. The French attacker came being an indisputable headline in the alignment of Xavi Hernández and, besides, a big referent in the offensive culé. Without going further, the past Tuesday gave two assistances against the Celtic of Vigo.
Ferran Torres went out like titling in the right extreme and went back to leave doubts. It is not living his best moment with the Barça, although beside Memphis was the only player of the Barça that tried to generate some danger (that it remained in at all). In the second part, Xavi did several changes and modified practically all his line of attack, but Dembélé remained in the bench and did not see minutes.
His decision surprised, place came being an indisputable player. In fact, it was to title in ten of the last parties of the Barça in LaLiga and only jumped from the bank of acting against the Mallorca, in the victory tightened of the culés by 2-1. Nevertheless, Xavi Hernández has spoken in this regard and explained his suplencia against the Madrilenian group.
The egarense aimed that it bet by Ferran on Dembélé by what has seen in the last trainings of the Barça during the week, but does not treat of a personal message to the French, because it neither has played Adama Traoré: "I Have decided to play with Ferran by what see during the week because Dembélé comes of a big effort, by how plays the rival... Neither it has played Adama", sentenced.
The future of Dembélé, in the air
While this Sunday (in his birthday number 25), Dembélé has not played with the Barça, his future continues being an incógnita and the time runs against of a Barcelona picture that wants to renew him, but that sees that his situation is very stagnated. There is not answer of the last offer that presented him and every time are more the teams that add to the 'bidding' by his traspaso like free agent this summer.
The Bayern of Munich has been the last in adding like possible candidate to do with his services. 'Sky Sports' informed that the French is in the diary of the picture muniqués, that wants to reinforce his line of attack in front of the possible exit of Robert Lewandowski. Although it will not be the replacement of the Pole, see to the international with France like a big alternative to play by the right and give speed and desborde to the team trained by Julian Nagelsmann.
