Ousmane Dembélé’s future at FC Barcelona remains uncertain as reports suggest he’s on his way to joining Paris Saint-Germain. Nonetheless, like any transfer saga, there are twists and turns.
The Spanish giants set a deadline if the 26-year-old intends to return to France. The 2023-24 season is about to start, and there are only a few weeks until the summer transfer window closes.
Jijantes FC reports that Dembélé must notify the club before Friday whether he accepts PSG’s offer or not, and so far, he has not communicated his decision.
Antes del viernes, Dembélé debe comunicar al club si acepta o no la oferta del PSG. Aún no lo ha comunicado.
El Barça está obligado por contrato a venderlo. El jugador galo presentó antes del 31 de julio la oferta del club francés por valor de 50M€.

The situation has put Barcelona in a difficult position as they are contractually obliged to sell the player if a suitable offer is made. Dembélé presented PSG’s offer before July 31st, with the French club tabling a bid valued at €50 million.
Over the last few days, details of the move have begun to trickle out to the public. One of them is why the Frenchman wants to leave Camp Nou. The other is how some have been caught off guard by the winger’s decision to depart now.
