Transfer journalist provides an update on Ousmane Dembele

Although the Blues and the Magpies have been connected to Ousmane Dembele, it seems that neither club will be able to acquire the Barcelona attacker this summer. In March of 2023, a rumour from said that Newcastle and Chelsea were both interested in acquiring Dembele.

Former Barcelona player Lionel Messi said in March 2020 that the France international forward’s “pace is frightening in training” in a report from the Italian news site GiveMeSport. The article also said that Manchester United, Juventus, and Inter Milan are interested in signing him.

An update on Dembele’s condition has been provided by Fabrizio Romano. The Italian journalist tweeted that Barcelona had extended a contract offer to the 25-year-old player. According to Romano, the Frenchman wants to remain in Barcelona, and negotiations are forthcoming.

Transfer journalist provides an update on Ousmane Dembele

We think it’s unlikely that Chelsea or Newcastle United would be able to negotiate a deal with Barcelona to get Ousmane Dembele this summer. Xavi, the head coach of Barcelona, wants the Frenchman to remain, and that fact is likely to weigh heavily on the player’s mind. Barca is now leading La Liga and will undoubtedly want to build on their success in the UEFA Champions League in future seasons.

Under Xavi’s tutelage, Dembele has emerged as a key player for Barcelona. The 25-year-old has played in La Liga for the Blaugrana this season, starting 14 times and coming off the bench another six times. Dembele, who has battled injuries all year, has scored five goals and assisted on five more in his last ten outings.
