During the last months, there have been many attempts between the board of directors of the former president Josep María Bartomeu, as well as the current representation headed by Carles Tusquets in signing the renewal of Ousmane Dembélé without any fortune. Dembelé, who ends his contract in 2022, has been elusive and has long been running throughout, this time with tricky and very varied excuses.
The truth is that Dembélé, although he is very comfortable in Barcelona, feels that it is not the club in which he wants to triumph and for that reason, he has long assumed that he will try to make the most, the time he has left in FC Barcelona, thus to be able to sign a new great contract from 2022 in a club where the conditions for him are the necessaries to succeed. Barcelona is immersed in a renovation project that will take years, according to the French player, and he does not want to start from scratch again.
At the age of 23 he wants to start to take off and not continue to link injuries one after another, something that has only happened to him in Barcelona. That is why neither last summer nor this December has FC Barcelona achieved the footballer's sign. Dembélé will play for los Culés for the year and a half of his remaining contract, where the player hopes to show his best version in order that the great teams in Europe notice him. So far with Barcelona, he earns 10 million per season and does not want to have to cut his salary at the age 24 years.
In order to do this, he will have to increase his level and recover everything that Barcelona paid for him, 130 million euros almost 4 years ago. The youth Pedri, is another player who also ends his contract in 2022 , the new jewel of the club. But, unlike Dembélé, he does have the time to wait for Barcelona to renew and compete again with the strongest teams in Europe such as Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Liverpool or Juventus.
