has talked about the matter, insisting that the French striker doesn’t want to be a part of the club’s plans and he will be sold.

Alemany said


These conversations and critics have been frustrating to Dembele, and he has answered all the critics in a statement, insisting that his time at the club has come to an end.

In a lengthy statement on social media, he wrote:

“It's been four years since I've stopped reading things about myself without ever trying to justify myself. Gossip about me has been piling up for four years.

“For four years people have spoken for me, shamefully lied with a single purpose, the intention of harm me.

“As of today, it's over. Starting today, I will answer honestly, without giving in to any kind of blackmail.

“I am 24 years old and like every man, I have flaws, imperfections. I have lived through complex moments, injuries, Covid has affected me.

“Without the slightest training session, the manager has requested me and I have always complied...without grumbling.

“I forbid anyone to give the impression that I am not involved in the sports project. I forbid anyone to attribute intentions to me that I have never had. I forbid anyone to speak for me or my representative, whom I trust completely.

“I'm still under contract, I'm fully involved and at the disposal of my club, my coach, I have always given everything for my colleagues and also for all the partners... it is not now that that is going to change.

“I am not a man who cheats and even less a man who has the habit of giving in to blackmail.

"As you know, there are negotiations. I let my agent handle it, it's his turf. My field is the ball simply playing football, sharing moments of joy with my teammates and all the members."
