Dembele will Stay at Barca Despite Offers : Agent
Ousmane Dembele’s agent has insisted that his client will stay at Barcelona despite receiving offers from “several big European clubs.”
Dembele has scored 20 goals in all competitions with Barca since a move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017.
The 22-year-old has, however, struggled with injuries and had his attitude reportedly questioned by team-mates and club officials on more than one occasion.
Both of those issues came up recently as Dembele was ruled out for up to five weeks with a hamstring strain suffered against Athletic last week.
“I wanted to clarify firmly and definitively the situation of Ousmane Dembele,” Sissoko told L’Equipe.
“He has not planned on leaving FC Barcelona even for a moment. This is the course of action set for several months now and no element is or will be likely to make us deviate from it.
“Ousmane feels perfectly well within the club and he remains determined to impose himself in the long term.
“Despite the offers of several big European clubs, Ousmane is convinced he wants to be part of the biggest of them and that everything is set for him to flourish.”
