To Joan Laporta warned him that his second stage like president of the FC Barcelona did not go to be simple and already has checked it with grow. From achieving the guarantee to last hour until 'leave' leave to Leo Messi, going through a few questionable movements, 'Jan' has lived some first months to the quite complicated control. In January the situation has not improved and the club has confronted to his enésimo problem: Ousmane Dembélé and his near future, near or far of the Barça.

The case of the French is the second big operation of Laporta and company, waiting for that have a positive result. It did not go like this in the summer, when the Barça did not achieve to renew the agreement of Leo Messi and saw like the maximum star and referent of the Barcelona history left by the rear door. 'Jan' aimed in an infinity of times that went to do all the possible to avoid the exit of the Argentinian, but found with a financial reality very different and a 'fair play' financial that does not give grantings, not even to avoid the exit of 'The Flea'.

With Messi were months of negotiation so that it remained and the club never found the formula hit, although the one of Rosario accepted to go down his wage to the half and extend his stay by five years more, although in principle it posed his renewal only by two years more. Finally, from the Barça announced him that they could not extend his stay in the Camp Nou and, therefore, had to do his cases to leave . It put course to Paris and will be in the Park of the Princes until the summer of 2023.

It was the first big 'failure' of the board of Laporta, but the situation has not been more bearable or simple in the following months. Now, Ousmane Dembélé has 'antojado' as the big problem for the maximum mandator culé, Mateu Alemany and company. After it announced that the French did not have intention to renew his agreement with the Barça, which wins on 30 June, the club has worked to time trial to achieve his exit... And it is him finish the time.

From the Barça communicated him to Dembélé that, if it did not renew, did not go to play and that, therefore, had to leave the team before 31 January. The date has arrived and has not found a solution so that the one of Vernon abandon the City Condal. It has turned into an operation costs up that has required more work and time of the expected, but that also is putting to proof the patience of the directors of the Barcelona group.

The Barça, always to time trial

The situation of the Barça to day of today is complicated and everything aims that it will continue being like this in the next months, in spite of the big efforts from the offices of the Camp Nou for revertir the economic crisis, institutional and sportive by which crosses the entity culé. It remains some time to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but is working in this: the way is long and slope up, but would have to have a happy end.

However, for now it remains to follow working and 'trust' in that, unlike what happened with Leo Messi in the summer, the denouement of the history of Dembélé with the Barça was positive and benefit to the interests of the club, exasperated for generating 'fair play' financial thinking in some traspaso 'bomb' in the next markets.
