Barcelona in Doubt? Dembélé’s Future at the Club Uncertain Amid PSG Interest

The Ousmane Dembélé transfer saga is hitting overdrive as his release clause is at €50 million until July 31. As a result, these next few hours are crucial to see if Paris Saint-Germain can land the FC Barcelona star. 

COPE’s Helena Condis reports that Barcelona is facing serious doubts about the future of Dembélé. Furthermore, Condis notes that the player’s entourage has confirmed that PSG is relentlessly trying to secure the Frenchman’s signature.

RMC Sport’s Fabrice Hawkins adds that the next few hours will be decisive. Paris wants to trigger his €50 million release clause before it expires on Monday. Unless there is a last-minute change, Dembélé will be a PSG player.

A mixture of promise and injury setbacks has marked Dembélé’s time at Barcelona. The talented winger arrived at the Catalan club in 2017 with high expectations, but injuries have disrupted his progress and limited his playing time. 

PSG had their initial offer of €30 million declined by Olympique Lyonnais for Bradley Barcola. This revelation reportedly drove PSG’s push to trigger the Barcelona star’s release clause. 

The deal structure for Dembélé’s possible transfer is equally fascinating. If PSG successfully activates the release clause, the player would be entitled to 50 percent of the fee, amounting to €25 million. The remaining 50 percent, also €25 million, would be paid to Barcelona.
