The transfer of Ousmane Dembélé from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain is finally nearing its end. The French winger will be returning to France, but there was a minor pause in the transfer recently.
A potential roadblock delayed the inevitable departure of the 26-year-old from Camp Nou. Jijantes FC’s Gerard Romero reports that the unexpected hurdle is due to both clubs grappling with differing payment terms.
Romero notes that the delay in finalizing the deal stemmed from PSG’s preference to pay the transfer fee in installments. Meanwhile, Barcelona insisted on receiving the total amount upfront.

PSG’s preference for paying the transfer fee in installments reflects its strategy to manage its financial commitments over time. This approach aligns with the club’s financial planning and provides flexibility in allocating resources for other areas of its operations.
On the other hand, FC Barcelona’s insistence on receiving the full transfer fee upfront signifies their desire to address their financial demands comprehensively.
Despite the recent setback, all signs point toward the 26-year-old joining PSG and possibly playing this Saturday against FC Lorient at the Parc Des Princes.
