Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele Set to Join PSG on Five-Year Contract

2 min read

Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele’s future seems to be taking a different turn as he reportedly gives his approval to a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The French champions are preparing to trigger his €50m release clause before it doubles on Monday, reaching €100m. 

This comes after months of speculation linking Dembele with a move to PSG, and it seems the deal is inching closer to completion. Previously, Chelsea had shown interest in signing Dembele, but it appears that PSG’s promising sporting project has convinced the player to join their ranks. 

The move comes as no surprise given Dembele’s injury-riddled time at Barcelona since his high-profile transfer from Borussia Dortmund six years ago. PSG has been actively reinforcing their squad this summer, and Dembele’s arrival is set to bolster their attacking options.

Dembele’s time at Barcelona has been filled with ups and downs. He arrived at the Catalan club for a staggering fee of €135m and has shown flashes of brilliance, scoring 40 goals and providing 43 assists in 185 matches for the Spanish champions. However, his progress has been hampered by frequent injuries, leading to uncertainty about his future with Barcelona. Despite the club’s desire to keep him until 2027, speculations of a potential summer exit heightened when head coach Xavi refused to rule out the possibility of Dembele leaving the La Liga champions.

The decision to join PSG seems to have been motivated by Dembele’s desire for a fresh start and the lure of PSG’s ambitious sporting project. The French giants have been making significant moves in the transfer market, signing players like Marco Asensio, Arnau Tenas, Milan Skriniar, Manuel Ugarte, Lee Kang-in, Cher Ndour, Lucas Hernandez, and former youth product Xavi Simons. Dembele’s arrival is expected to further reinforce PSG’s attack, especially in the wake of Lionel Messi’s departure, as they continue to adapt to life without the Argentine superstar.

As the Dembele-to-PSG deal edges closer, football fans eagerly await to witness his impact in the Parisian colors. Meanwhile, the saga surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s future remains unresolved, with speculations of potential interest from Liverpool and Chelsea. PSG fears that Mbappe might have already agreed to join Real Madrid on a free transfer in 2024, as the Spanish giants seem reluctant to meet the asking price this summer. The upcoming transfer window promises to be eventful, with high-profile moves potentially reshaping the football landscape.
