Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele is rapidly linked with Paris Saint-Germain
Dembele is fast connecting to PSG. Santi Auna of “Foot Mercato” in France said on his SNS on the 28th (Korea Standard Time), “For PSG coach Luis Enrique, Dembele was the priority. PSG is his bar We plan to trigger 50 million euros (about 70.4 billion won), and if there is no change, his medical test will be conducted in Los Angeles, USA,” he posted
Dembele was highly anticipated for his huge transfer fee, and Dembele joined Barcelona in 2017 for a transfer fee of 140 million euros (about 19.3 billion won) and played for Borussia Dortmund ahead of his much-anticipated performance with explosive dribbling skills and individual skills.
However, frequent injuries were a flaw in his career. Dembele has suffered from injuries that he has not been able to play a season properly for five seasons. Home fans even booed Dembele, who paid a large transfer fee but did not perform well.
But Xavi kept faith until the end and guaranteed Dembele a steady chance to play, and eventually repaid that trust, Dembele gained strength in the second half of the 2021-22 season and became the league assistant king.
However, in the 2022-23 season, he gained strength at the end of the season by giving up his starting position to transfer student Rafinha, and he scored 5 goals and 7 assists in 25 games in La Liga last season, but it is still hard to say that he deserves a perfect ransom compared to transfer fees and expectations.
Now PSG are looking for him. PSG, which opened a new era by appointing coach Enrique, is giving coach Enrique the authority to recruit players. And from the other day, coach Enrique wanted Dembele. Auna said on the 6th, “Dembele is PSG’s priority if Kylian Mbappe leaves. Coach Luis Enrique highly values him, and Dembele has a buyout of 50 million euros (approximately 70.4 billion won).” has been revealed
Dembele is the signing coach Enrique wants. Director Luis Campos oversees the overall recruitment of PSG, but coach Enrique has consistently wanted to recruit Dembele since taking office, and now it is said that his recruitment is imminent.
On the other hand, if Dembele is recruited, he must compete with Lee Kang-in for the starting position. Lee Kang-in started as a right winger in the preseason match against Le Havre on the 22nd. He suffered a hamstring injury at the end of the first half and unfortunately finished the game, but it was a game that could guess the possibility of Lee Kang-in being appointed as a right winger under coach Enrique.
On the other hand, if Lee Kang-in is appointed as a right winger at PSG, he will have to compete with Dembele. Also, PSG are on the verge of signing a high-value contract with Dembele. According to the British ‘The Athletic’, PSG had a buyout clause of 50 million euros (approximately 70.4 billion won) with Dembele until today, but a buyout of 100 million euros (approximately 140.9 billion won) was set from August 1st. It is said to be
If Barcelona makes this transfer, it can receive a large transfer fee from PSG, but it is highly likely that La Liga’s financial soundness regulation (FFP) will also need to be checked separately.
