Since it initiated the pre-season, the FC Barcelona considered to Ousmane Dembélé a key and untransferable player. Only the arrival of Neymar, that did not arrive to produce, could have supposed his course like yielded to Paris Saint-Germain. But the club considered him important from the first moment and the French answered with a more professional and responsible attitude.

The French recortó his holidays to put to the orders of Ernesto Valverde before what touched him and put hands to the work. Heavy weights of the staff like Sergio Busquets recognised that they had detected a change of attitude very positive in him during the summer and exposed it publicly, doing presage that the 'mosquito' would hammer stronger that never.

Nevertheless, Dembélé topó again with the ballast that carries time bearing since it arrived to the FC Barcelona: the injuries. In the first party of LaLiga Santander, in Saint Mamés against the AthleticClub , suffered a break in the biceps femoral of the left leg, with a time of drop estimated of five to six weeks.

This sucedió around the middle of August and a month afterwards, already thinks in returning to the terrains of game. The aim of the French is to be in full form to be able to have minutes in The Cármenes, in the party that will play this weekend against the Granada. It knows that this season the competition is strong and wants to demand his place with his talent.

Nevertheless, Ernesto Valverde does not think to risk to go back to lose him. In this start of League, canteranos like Carles Pérez or Ansu Fati have given him a big performance, reason by which does not seem necessary to force to Dembélé so that it play if really it is not to the one hundred by one hundred. A new injury could be a very hard hit.

The place of Dembélé

In summer, Ousmane Dembélé knew at first hand that the competition in the leading would be hard by the presence of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and the recently arrived Antoine Griezmann. What escaped of his control was the irruption of Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati, that suppose two new challenges for him, that wants to reach the titularity.
