Ousmane Dembélé and his career at the Catalan club may yet have a chance.
For the winger, who had been negotiating a new deal in recent weeks, it's been a very eventful week.
With their French winger's contract expiring in the summer, Barcelona has been making offers for more than a month.
However, after Barca had waited quietly for an answer, it became evident that the last approach had been rejected last week.
Following the announcement, Barcelona president
categorically stated that if Dembélé does not renew his contract, he would be transferred during this window for the Blaugrana to recoup at least some of the more than €100 million they spent on the Frenchman in 2017.
Dembélé has subsequently been left out of theLaLiga
side's most recent matchday roster, according to club officials.
The winger has also been absent from training due to sickness; however, it may be a coverup considering the scenario.
Meanwhile, it appears as Dembélé may still have a chance to stay if he so desires.
Dembélé's agent Moussa Sissoko landed in Barcelona this afternoon, according toMundo Deportivo
, for the last meeting with Barca's top brass.
Before agreeing on the next best course of action, both sides will see if they can strike a deal one more time. As a result, a crucial meeting is on the horizon.
