Barcelona Transfer News: Barcelona Set to Offer Ousmane Dembele a New Deal Until 2028

Barcelona Transfer News: Barcelona is reportedly considering offering Ousmane Dembele a new contract until 2028, according to Spanish journalist Luis Rojo. The move comes as the Frenchman has significantly improved under Xavi Hernandez’s management, contributing 10 goals and 20 assists in 61 games for Barcelona.

Dembele’s Underwhelming Spell at Camp Nou

Dembele’s arrival at Camp Nou in 2017 was marked by a lot of hype and expectation, but he struggled to live up to his price tag of almost €147m, primarily due to his injury problems and inconsistency. However, under Xavi’s leadership, Dembele has shown great promise and has become a key player for the Catalan giants.

Dembele’s Contract Renewal with Unusual Conditions

Dembele renewed his contract with Barcelona until 2024 last summer, but his new deal came with some unusual conditions. His release clause was set at €50 million, with the fee split between the club and the player if paid. This move was seen as a way to keep Dembele at the club while also protecting Barcelona’s financial interests.

Barcelona’s Search for a Sergio Busquets Replacement

Barcelona is looking to replace the outgoing Sergio Busquets and has drawn up a shortlist of potential replacements. Xavi is keen on bringing in a top-class midfielder, and Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is reportedly at the top of his wishlist. The German midfielder is set to become a free agent in the summer and reportedly has a contract offer from Barcelona on the table.

Another free agent that Barcelona is keen on signing is Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante. However, the Blues are also in talks with the midfielder over a new deal, and he could end up staying at Stamford Bridge. Other midfield options being considered by Barcelona include Nordin Amrabat, Marcelo Brozovic, Martín Zubimendi, Hugo Guillamón, and Nico González.

Xavi Not Keen on Ruben Neves

Although Ruben Neves of Wolverhampton Wanderers has been named as an option for Barcelona, Xavi is reportedly not too keen on the Portugal international.


Ousmane Dembele has shown a lot of promise under Xavi’s leadership. Barcelona is keen on keeping him at the club for the long term. The Frenchman’s new contract will likely include better terms than his previous deal and will reflect his improved performance on the pitch. Meanwhile, Barcelona’s search for a Sergio Busquets replacement continues. Xavi is hoping to bring in a top-class midfielder to fill the void left by the outgoing midfielder.
