The resolution of the 'Dembélé case' can be decisive to resolve up to three coup operations at FC Barcelona. Depending on whether Ousmane renews or leaves, the club will be able to decide what to do with Memphis Depay and Raphinha.

Ousmane Dembélé Could have the future of two players in his hands. If the one of Vernom finally finishes renewing with the FC Barcelona, his stay in the city condal would be key for desvelar the future of two players. On the one hand, his mate Memphis Depay. By the another, the Brazilian Raphinha, of the Leeds United. The stay or arrival of both forwards to the Barça depends, to a large extent, of what suceda with 'Dembouz', since the club has too many forwards in his staff for the 2022-23.

In principle, the renewal of Dembélé would close him the door to the signing of Raphinha, since both play like extremes by right and, if the Frenchman remains , the Brazilian would not take place in the team. Of equal way, if Ousmane signs a new agreement with the club, the sentenced could be Depay. The Dutch has the confidence of Xavi, but the presence of Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang, more the arrival of a '9', would leave him without opportunities for the next season.

With agreement until June of 2023, the summer will be key for Memphis. The forward has, in principle, three options: be traspasado (by sale), renew and remain (or leave yielded) and permancer in the club to fulfil his agreement. In any one of the cases, the directive will not take a decision until not knowing which sucederá with 'Dembouz'. In principle, the '7' prefer to remain in Cataunya, but ace negotiations follow stagnated because his agent, Moussa Sissoko, denies to yield in his economic pretences.

The third link of the chain in the 'operation Dembélé' has to see with Raphinha. When being represented by the agency of Deco, the one of Carry Cheerful follows having good options to negotiate with the club, as long as Ousmane leave in July. Of the contrary, is difficult that the club decide fichar a player with his characteristics in a position that would be cover. Of the same way, the resolution of his signing also is conditioned by the future of the Leeds, since his value would go down to the half (25 'kilos') if the club descends in the Premier League.

The challenge of Mateu Alemany and the sportive direction

Of this way, the summer poses like a big challenge for Mateu Alemany. The director of football of the club will have to help to the club to take the best decisions to articulate the staff of the Barça for the 2022-23, according to the requests of Xavi Hernández. If finally it concretises the arrival of Robert Lewandoski, the panorama lucirá clearer for the club, at least, to define his forward of face to the next season.

In this moment, the group blaugrana has nine forwards in the staff, too many considering the economic situation of the club. Of them, it is practically descartada the continuity of Adama Traoré and of Martin Braithwaite. Another that is 'on a tightrope' is Luuk of Jong, the one who almost with security will return to the Seville in summer. The others two 'serials' pending are Dembélé and Memphis. It will be the French the manager of the exit of the tulip? The next weeks will say it.
