Ousmane Dembele set to sign two-year renewal with Barcelona – report

Spanish news outlet Marca has offered a fresh update on Barcelona’s lengthy contract standoff with Ousmane Dembele, suggesting the saga is nearing its conclusive end.

After months of negotiations, it appears the two parties are on the verge of reaching an agreement over a new contract that would see Dembele signing a two-year deal at Camp Nou.

The report from Marca suggests the two parties are currently in the final stage of negotiations and only need the “last push” to get the deal over the line.

Dembele is currently a free agent after he ran down his contract at Camp Nou at the end of June. For the majority of the year, there was a massive disparity between what Barcelona were willing to offer and what Dembele’s agent was demanding.

However, those differences have been closed and it appears a few minor details are left to be completed before the deal can be finalised. It is now a question of whether or not the two parties finally go through with the deal.

All reports indicate Dembele might soon sign the agreement and remain at Camp Nou after months of negotiations and several board meetings.

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez, who has played a vital role in convincing Barça to go after the Frenchman’s contract extension, is keen on finalising the deal as soon as possible, as he wants the attacker to become a part of pre-season.

Barcelona have already kickstarted their training on July 4, with multiple first-team stars returning to Ciudad Esportiva, including Ansu Fati, who has returned to 100% after yet another long injury layoff. The explosive attacker will be keen on getting started on a positive note, alongside fellow winger Ousmane Dembele next season.
