The Blaugrana are reaching an agreement with Ousmane Dembele over a new deal.

Ousmane Dembele

was targeted for a move away from


in the summer transfer window, when the Blaugrana were pushing to retain

Lionel Messi

’s services.

However, as he sustained an injury in the Euro 2020 and underwent surgery, with his return being scheduled in October, his chance to depart was stalled.

If he does not want to be without a contract next summer, he has to pen a new deal with the Catalans, who are not willing to lose their £100million signing from 2017 for free.

The new contract will most likely have a pay cut for the Frenchman, who hasn’t lived up to the expectation due to a number of injury setbacks.

The talks are going in the right direction as the winger is keen on staying at Barcelona. There is only one meeting left for an agreement to be reached.

As per reports from

Mundo Deportivo

, Barcelona chief Mateu Alemany is negotiating with Dembele’s agent Moussa Sissoko.
