Ousmane Dembele gives definitive response to PSG interest

Ousmane Dembele of FC Barcelona looks on during the Copa Del Rey Round of 32 match between Intercity and FC Barcelona at Estadio Jose Rico Perez on January 04, 2023 in Alicante, Spain.

Ousmane Dembele has warned Paris Saint-Germain that he has no interest in leaving Barcelona in the near future.

PSG were among the sides chasing Dembele as his previous contract wound down towards the end of last season and the Ligue 1 leaders have been tipped to lodge a bid for the 25-year-old as he enters the final 18 months of his current deal.

Asked for his feelings towards an imminent move to PSG, Dembele made it abundantly clear that his focus is solely on Barcelona.

“Four months ago, I signed a new contract with FC Barcelona,” he told Eleven Sports. “I’m happy here. We will continue to work with Barça.

“Does Paris interest me? No, I’m fine in Barcelona. There’s a good living environment. I’m also fine with the coach. I have the confidence of the coach but also of the leaders of the club. When you have that confidence…I feel good and happy.”

Dembele’s declaration comes shortly after president Joan Laporta named the winger as one of four unsellable players in the Barcelona squad. Laporta even took the chance to send a message directly to PSG, stressing his refusal to sell Dembele.

“If PSG try to sign him, we’ll tell them he’s not for sale,” Laporta told Cadena SER. “He’s one of the most important players we have. He has extraordinary speed. He’s a lightning bolt. Every time he gets the ball, he can beat people. He will not leave for €70m, nor any amount.”
