Calendar of FC Barcelona

After months of rumours and speculations, the serial of Ousmane Dembélé came to an end with the signature of a new agreement with the Barcelona. The player of 25 years had turned into free agent at the beginning of month, after his agreement with the Barcelona expired on 30 June. However, in spite of having been linked with several clubs like Chelsea, the PSG and the Liverpool, the French has decided finally go back to sign with the heavy weights Catalans.

With this signature and with all the other signings that have arrived to the entity in this market, the aim of the Catalan team is to go back to succeed in the Champions League, where carries time without appearing like one of the favourites. The fans opt for using the best bets free and trust that the team can attain again victories in distinct competitions.

To continuation, analyse four reasons by which Ousmane decided to give a twist of 180 degrees for fichar by the Barcelona after it seemed that the relation between both parts was irreconciliable:

Xavi knows how take out his best performance

It is not any secret that the presence of Xavi in the bench of the Barcelona has been key for the signing of Dembélé. The technician of the Catalan club had played a fundamental paper so that it went back to the staff after the split in January.

After this, the egarense achieved to take out the best of the extreme Frenchman. Definitely, the player of 25 years played some of his best parties in his five years in the Camp Nou under the tutela of the legend of the club, since it finished the campaign with thirteen assistances in spite of losing several parties by injury.

By all this, is likely that the confidence showed by the trainer have played a key paper in the renewal. After all, it went Xavi the one who presionó to the directive so that it went back to negotiate an extention when all seemed finish.

Fault of offers

Although it spoke that Dembélé had a lot interest by part of clubs of all Europe, at the end resulted that the international 'bleu' had very little where choose when it arrived the moment to take a decision.

The PSG had showed a big interest, but the nomination of Luis Fields like new sportive director did that the Parisian giant put end to his interest. Chelsea had been linked, but changed his attention to Raheem Sterling and Raphinha, leaving to Dembélé hanged.

It had spoken of beaux of the size of the Liverpool, the Manchester United and the Bayern of Munich, but any of the clubs made a concrete approximation. Finally, the champion of the World-wide Glass of the FIFA 2018 did not have more remedy that accept the proposal of the Barcelona.

Possibility to be leader of the project

In his five years like player of the Barcelona, since it arrived pertinent of the Borussia Dortmund, Dembélé has struggled to a large extent with problems of form and has not been to the height of his enormous potential. However, to the orders of Xavi, in the second half of the past season, the French showed that it can mark the difference in the team when it treats of an effort. The ex player of the Rennes made several decisive performances so that the Barça finish second in the League.

In the process it showed that, if it is in shape and it uses properly, Ousmane can be a big player for the Barça. And with the club in a phase of transition, the opportunity to turn into the main figure of this reconstruction under the control of the technician of Terrassa probably will have attracted to the extreme and has forced it to go back to sign with the club.

Recover his reputation in the club

It is not any secret that Dembélé has had brush with disciplinary questions and a behaviour little professional out of the field in the past. From his stage in the Rennes, the Frenchman has characterised by not respecting the time of assistance to the trainings. These problems prolonged during his stay in the Borussia Dortmund and have repeated also in the Barcelona.

Besides, it is known for comporting of form little professional to go out with his, as it did during his stage in the Rennes to force his signing by the Dortmund, before repeating these tantrums in Germany to achieve a traspaso to the Barcelona.

Now that returns to a place in which it wants him and that has the confidence of the trainer, the player of 25 years will have the opportunity to repair his image and his reputation and convert no only in a footballer of first, but also in a professional of first.
