Ousmane Dembélé Transfer: Fabrizio Romano Reveals Decision Rests with Barcelona Player

The Ousmane Dembélé transfer saga is reaching its climax, with hours left until the calendar hits August 1. It’s important to note that the Frenchman’s release clause with FC Barcelona stands at €50 million until July 31. 

As a result, Paris Saint-Germain is pushing to land the 26-year-old at an economical price. Dembélé’s arrival would be to fill the shoes left behind by Kylian Mbappé. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is likely on the way out this summer.

Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano shed light on the situation. The journalist reveals that the final decision on Dembélé’s destination rests solely on the player.

PSG’s interest in Dembélé escalated after Olympique Lyonnais (OL) rejected their initial bid of €30 million for Bradley Barcola. The ball is now firmly in Dembélé’s court, as he faces a pivotal decision between joining PSG this summer or extending his contract with Barcelona.

The deal structure for Dembélé’s potential transfer is equally intriguing. If PSG successfully triggers 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.
