Ousmane Dembélé Did not accept to leave to the Manchester United and the FC Barcelona will have to decide what does with the French forward, that finish agreement in 2022
Ousmane Dembélé Is the second more expensive signing of the history of the FC Barcelona. A footballer by which the Catalan picture paid to the Borussia Dortmund 105 million fixed euros more other 40 in variables of easy fulfillment. An important bet of the sportive direction headed by Robert Fernández -to substitute to Neymar in summer of 2017- by a young player that only carried two years in the elite.
Of this already does three years and, after an ordeal of injuries, Ousmane Dembélé has not achieved, for the moment, shine of way continued. The destellos of quality that has showed have arrived in dropper, warning of his desbordante talent, but without complementing with a professional attitude. To his constant physical problems, have added problems of discipline, especially of his punctuality in the trainings.
Ronald Koeman tired of all this and, without hardly give him opportunities, opened him the door of exit. The FC Barcelona needed to free mass salarial to bring to Memphis Depay and the Dutch technician did not doubt in signalling to Ousmane Dembélé like the sacrificed, the forward more prescindible of the staff. It was then when the Manchester United appeared to carry it yielded but the own player shattered the operation.
The reason was simple: Ousmane Dembélé finishes his agreement with the FC Barcelona in June of 2022 and the loan of the French to the 'network devils' included a renewal by a season more, something that did not accept. And now, the Barcelona club has an important problem on of the table: the second more expensive player of his history is to two years to finish agreement and exists the big dilemma of if renew him or try sell him what before.
It is clear that the performance of Ousmane Dembélé in the next months will be key to dictate the way that will follow the FC Barcelona with him, but the true is that the time plays against of the culés if the decision is finally not expanding his agreement. If it sells him next summer, it will be to fault of a year to finish agreement, something that will diminish substantially his price of exit and will do that it have not amortised .
If Koeman does not give him minutes, the Barcelona will have a problem
By the moment, Ronald Koeman has not given him to Ousmane Dembélé the opportunity to claim on the terrain of game further of 20 minutes against the Villarreal. If the Dutch follows without giving him minutes to the French extreme, the problem will be for the FC Barcelona: if it does not have opportunities, will deny to renew and, besides, any team will decide to pay an important quantity by his traspaso. It is indispensable, therefore, that the 'mosquito' play.
