Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona will reportedly have a few days to discuss a possible Ousmane Dembélé transfer. The capital club had an opportunity to trigger the €50 million release clause, but that deadline has passed.
Dembélé’s new release clause is €100 million, which isn’t too expensive, but it’s a price that PSG might not be keen on paying. RMC Sport reports that PSG and Barcelona are discussing the transfer fee for the Frenchman.

Furthermore, the information from the media outlet notes that the cost will not be €100 million. The 26-year-old has reportedly agreed to personal terms with the Ligue 1 champions, so the final hurdle is both clubs finding common ground.
The winger wants to depart positively, which might explain the lack of urgency to meet the release clause deadline that expired on Monday at midnight. Dembélé likely wants to leave a respectable sum so the Spanish club can find a replacement.
PSG has a few weeks to secure the player as they’ll put Dembélé as one of the faces of this new project under manager Luis Enrique.
