In parallel with his press conference where he denounced the actions of his predecessor Josep Maria Bartomeu, even mentioning legal actions, the president of Barça Joan Laporta returned to the Ousmane Dembélé file.

And of course, while the winger finally stayed at Barça for the end of the season, the criticisms did not fail to rain. “We made him a good economic offer but he wanted an even better offer. When we said she was good enough, it stalled. The agent wouldn’t answer for weeks. He was offered two offers from clubs which were excellent, he refused. It’s surprising, ”Laporta first dropped in comments relayed by Actualité Barça.

An agreement with another club?

Before ensuring that the Barca winger most likely already has an agreement with another club. “He preferred to stay here for six months. It’s not good for him or for us. Extending it would have given us more room to work easily during this transfer window. It’s hard to understand his positioning. We want to build a competitive team but Dembele won’t be there next year. He has an agreement with another club, at least his agent implied that. We will act in the interest of the club”.
