Ousmane Dembele lits his transfer sega after responding to a fan

Ousmane Dembele was caught on tape telling a Barcelona fan that he is staying with the team and calling rumors about a summer move to Chelsea “just that.”

The French forward’s contract at Camp Nou ends at the end of the month, but his future is still uncertain because the Catalan giants haven’t renewed it yet. He is free to talk to other clubs, and the Blues are said to be the most interested in signing him.

In January, Xavi said that he felt cheated by the Frenchman, and last week, the player was given what seemed to be a transfer ultimatum by the coach. Barca got a legal warning the same day after Mateu Alemany, who is in charge of sports, said that the player had been told: “he must leave the club as soon as possible.”

A fan filmed himself talking to Dembele, who was in his car, on a street in Barcelona. When asked if he was going to stay at the club after this season, the Frenchman said “yes.” He was then asked if he would be joining Chelsea. He said, “These are just rumors.” When asked if Blues manager Thomas Tuchel, who coached him at Dortmund, was interested in him, he said, “I’m good at Barcelona.”

Dembele has been linked with a move to the Premier League. Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea have all been mentioned as possible destinations for him. Moussa Sissoko, the player’s agent, has been very involved in his client’s future, and he has been very vocal about how Barca has handled his client’s future.

Sissoko was seen arriving at the Barcelona airport at the end of January, and TV images showed his agent getting a call from PSG’s sporting director Leonardo. It seemed like another negotiating move on Sissoko’s part, but five months later, the player’s future is still uncertain because his contract with Barça is coming to an end.

Dembele’s contract ends on June 30, so he has been free to talk to other clubs and sign a pre-contract since January 1. In 2017, Barca paid £105 million to buy Dembele from Borussia Dortmund. The deal could have gone up to £135 million, which has become a symbol of the club’s risky transfer policy.

Since he joined Barcelona in the summer of 2017, the French forward has had a lot of injury problems. He has only started 69 of a possible 190 games in La Liga, which shows how hard it is for him to stay fit and avoid injury problems. In January, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres joined the team at Camp Nou, which made him even less important at the club.

Chelsea’s interest in the former Dortmund forward is related to their desire to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City. Both deals could depend on the other. Dembele would help make up for the loss of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, who both left Stamford Bridge this summer without paying a transfer fee.
