Ousmane Dembele says he not in a hurry to renew his contract with Barcelona
Even though his current Barcelona deal expires next year, in the summer of 2022
the Barcelona Forward is remaining patient when it comes to negotiating a potential
new contract. The Blaugrana would like him to stay but at a lower salary. If he doesn’t
accept that, then they could even look to sell him this summer.
“I don’t know, we’ll see,” he told L’Equipe when asked about his contractual situation.
The fleet-footed Frenchman is on international duty at the moment, preparing for this
summer’s European Championships and was seen enjoying the Monaco GP last week
and speaking to local media.
” Ousmane Dembele said when asked about his future at Barcelona. His contract expires
in the summer of 2022, meaning Barcelona will want him to either renew or be sold this
summer to avoid the risk of him leaving on a free transfer.
“We’ll meet with the Barcelona management. I’m not in a hurry, neither are they, we’ll
see what happens. First, I’m fully focused on the European Championships,
then I’ll go on vacation. It’s been a long season.” France is one of the favourites for
this summer’s competition, and Dembele will hope to play a leading role.
