La Liga – Dembele and Barcelona must become friends



La Liga – Dembele raised his level and seems to be key at Barcelona. Laporta’s board does not have much margin and will have to do the math if they want to fit the Frenchman. And in all this Xavi was the most important.

Barcelona has set to work to renew Ousmane Dembélé. An operation that seemed totally discarded a few months ago. But now revived in the face of the excellent performance that the Frenchman is offering in recent matches.

His continuity is a popular clamor. Laporta, Xavi and teammates do not miss an occasion in their public statements to join the cause of his renewal. But not all desires can be achieved.

Barcelona continues with a very delicate economic situation and Mateu Alemany is making authentic financial juggling. All in order to be able to balance the operation in the annual balance sheet. What is clear is that the situation has taken an absolute turn. And although things are complicated, nothing can be ruled out at this point. It is an operation full of pros and cons.

Alemany went to Marrakech to meet with the Frenchman’s agent, Moussa Sissoko. After several weeks in which there was no contact between the two parties.

Relations had broken down after the player did not accept the renewal in December, did not want to leave in the winter market and refused the letter of release offered by the club. Seeing the performance of the player, the Sporting Direction culé took the first step. And decided to put a meeting on the agenda.

The key player was Xavi

Xavi has been key in the change of position of the club. He was the main supporter of Dembélé and pressed for his return to the team in February. And not leave him in the stands as the board wanted.

The Barcelona coach always trusted Dembele, he has shown it match after match. And he has managed to integrate him into the group. Moreover, he has asked Laporta to try to renew him. Without the determination Xavi has shown in this matter, everything would have been different.

The meeting served to break the ice between the parties. It was not a negotiation per se in which the two sides started talking about money. It was a meeting to feel out the positions after a long time without contact.

What was clear is that the two parties are willing to talk about continuity. The club considers Dembélé a valuable player and the Frenchman has nothing signed with another club. He can decide his future and stay at Camp Nou. In a few days, there is no date for a next meeting, the economic proposals will begin.

Barcelona must settle the accounts

A headache for Barcelona in any economic operation that arises. It is necessary to reduce the salary mass of the entity to be able to bring players and renew those who are.

Barcelona cannot spend much and the player knows that he cannot extra limit himself in his requests because the club does not give for more. But in Barcelona they are also clear that if they do not renew Dembélé they will have to go to the market. And signing a player with his characteristics costs a lot of money.

Dembélé has a market. PSG and Premier League teams are interested in signing him on a free. It remains to be seen what finally happens with Mbappé because his continuity influences the signing of Dembélé.

Several English teams have inquired about Dembele and have made a move. Barcelona has the advantage that the player is now happy at Camp Nou. He is playing well, he has the confidence of the coach, he sees that there is a project for the future. And he feels integrated into the group. That is worth money and Barcelona cannot offer as many millions as others. But this is a framework for the player.
