Ousmane Dembele, who was treated as an ‘ugly duckling’, is dreaming of a future by transforming into a key player for Barcelona.
Dembele chose to stay at Barcelona after twists and turns last summer. At a time when Barcelona were experiencing financial problems, he was not ready to renew the contract with Dembele, who was suffering from frequent injuries despite receiving a high weekly wage. Dembele was reluctant to renew the contract with a reduced weekly wage.
However, even after the transfer market opened, the two sides found an agreement in a situation where there were not many teams wanting Dembele. He decided to supplement the reduced weekly wage with a bonus, and gave him a chance to choose again while signing a relatively short-term two-year contract. 안전놀이터
And as a result, Barcelona and Dembele also became a laughing choice. According to the Spanish sports newspaper ‘Sport’ reported on the 27th (Korean time), Dembele hopes to continue his career at Barcelona despite the expiration of his contract in 2024. Regardless of other clubs’ interest in Dembele, Dembele is content to be enjoying his best years as a professional player at Barcelona.
Dembele is shaving away concerns and flying in the manager system of Xavi Hernandez. He has appeared in 27 games this season, recording 8 goals and 7 assists. He contributes more than attack points. This is because he is a player who harasses opponents with personal breakthroughs from the side. Also, this season, he is taking care of his body well enough to play in all La Liga games without injury.
Barcelona are also preparing for a contract extension with Dembele. “As everyone knows, he is a very important player to me,” Xavi said. I know. That gives Dembele confidence. I hope he will be with us for a long time,” he praised the more mature Dembele.
