Dembele open to Barcelona wage cut

1 min read

Barcelona have reportedly held positive contract discussions with the agent of Ousmane Dembele ahead of a possible renewal.

The 24-year-old remained at the club in January despite an expected move elsewhere and now has just two months left to run on his existing deal with the Catalan giants.

Dembele has enjoyed a stellar period of improvement since the January transfer saga, though, and Xavi has heaped praise on the France international for his performances in 2022.

According to Sport – via Marca – Dembele’s agent Moussa Sissoko recently met with Barcelona to discuss a potential new deal for the attacker, and progress has been made in talks.

The report adds that Dembele has relented on his salary demands, and Barcelona will see whether they can afford the proposal, but he is still asking for more than what the Catalan club were originally willing to pay him.

The former Borussia Dortmund man has scored one goal and provided 11 assists in 17 La Liga appearances for Barcelona this season but is without a contribution in his last three top-flight matches.
