Speculation surrounding Ousmane Dembélé’s potential move to Paris Saint-Germain as a replacement for Kylian Mbappé has been quashed.
MARCA reported neither PSG has made contact with the Barcelona star nor is the player interested in leaving his current club. If Mbappé leaves PSG for Real Madrid, the French club will require a replacement to maintain their attacking prowess.

However, Dembélé is not likely to be the player they turn to. PSG will explore other options to find a suitable successor who can complement the team’s style and contribute to their ambitions.
While Dembélé’s talent and potential make him an intriguing option for several clubs, his commitment to Barcelona and the lack of contact from PSG suggest his immediate future lies with the Catalan giants.
Barcelona will be looking to build a competitive squad for the upcoming season. Dembélé has had his fair share of injury setbacks but has also demonstrated his talent. As a result, he’s a key player on the team if they want to build off winning LaLiga this 2022-23 season.
As the summer transfer window progresses, football fans and pundits will continue to monitor the developments surrounding Mbappé’s future and PSG’s search for a replacement.
