Foot – Market – Barcelone
As Ferran Torres heads to FC Barcelona, Ousmane Dembélé might not be a stranger to Joan Laporta’s offensive for the Manchester City player.
For several months now, the FC Barcelona tries to come to an agreement with the clan Ousmane Dembele for an extension, while the forward is currently in his last year of contract. If the French international would be willing to stay in Catalonia, his entourage would drag out the discussions, while several suitors are on the lookout to get their hands on him. In the meantime, the FC Barcelona is working on the next winter transfer window, and according to the winter press, the arrival of Ferran Torres would be imminent for an amount of 55M € + 10M € of bonus.

An arrival of Ferran Torres guaranteeing the extension of Ousmane Dembélé?
While the FC Barcelona could formalize in the coming hours the arrival of Ferran Torres, some Catalan specialists wonder about the capacity of the Barça to engage the services of the Spanish in terms of salary. But in the eyes of Toni Juanmartí, the extension ofOusmane Dembele could unblock the situation. As the journalist from Sport on Twitter, l’offensive express du Barça for Ferran Torres could mean thatOusmane Dembele has already guaranteed to his management that he would extend his lease. Enough to allow Joan Laporta to obtain the necessary means to recover the player from Manchester City while remaining in the nails of financial fair play of La Liga, since an extension ofOusmane Dembele would be synonymous with an extension of the amortization period of its transfer. Today, € 27 million remains to be amortized, and a new lease of Dembele at the Blaugrana would therefore give greater leeway in the transfer market. It remains to be seen whether this hypothesis is confirmed.
