Barcelona can sell Dembele for only 50 million euros
Barcelona could be forced to sell Ousmane Dembele for just €50m this summer. Although they paid him no less than € 135m to transfer him from Borussia Dortmund years ago.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants to keep French winger Dembele at the club. Persuading him to extend his contract with the club.
His contract with Barca expires in the summer of 2022. When he would be free to leave the Camp Nou for free.
Therefore, Laporta wants to avoid such a thing. Either by convincing the 24-year-old to continue the contract with the club. Or by selling him for a price of at least 50 million euros, according to Mundo Deportivos, the newspaper close to the Catalan club.
The amount of 50 million euros is low when you consider that Barcelona paid 135 million euros to Dortmund when they took the Frenchman from the Bundesliga in 2017.
But seeing that his current contract expires after a year. The club would not want to lose him without a penny.
Juventus has made efforts to lure Dembele. While Paris Saint-Germain intends to get him for free next summer.
