Dembele reached an agreement with another club - Laporta confirmed

Dembele will leave Camp Nou at the end of the season as a free agent.


president Joan Laporta believes that

Ousmane Dembele

has agreed with another club to join them at the end of his contract.

Dembele's contract with Barcelona expires at the end of the season, and the 24-year-old star has asked Barcelona to increase his salary to extend his contract. Given his ups and downs, as well as his numerous injuries, Barcelona announced that they had offered Dembele a lower salary under the new contract, which was not approved by the French striker. Barca told Dembele he had to leave the club in January, removing him from the roster. However, Dembele remained at Camp Nou and now Laporta has claimed that he has reached an agreement with another club for his transfer in the summer.

"Ousmane said that the renewal offer was very good, then it was an economic issue. And when we told him that it was already good enough, the agent took a position in not saying anything.

"Dembele wanted to accept a renewal. Then they wanted more and the issue got stuck. His agent didn't say anything and that has consequences. We've done everything possible and he hasn't accepted."

Laporta confirmed that an offer from Dembele had been received by an English club in January, but he declined the offer and waited to decide on his future at the end of the season.

"We are very surprised that he didn't accept the offer from the English club either, he prefers to stay here. It's not good for him or for the club.

"What happened with Dembele is difficult to understand. He is now in the squad and Xavi must work on the present but also on the future.

"We think Dembele has an agreement with another club."
