Agent reacts: "Barcelona is threatening Dembele"
Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele’s contract saga continues. And is becoming quite a nasty affair with the Frenchman’s agent accusing the club of threatening to isolate the winger until the end of his summer deal.
The former Borussia Dortmund player, Dembele will become a free agent in June if he does not sign a new deal at Camp Nou. Which is becoming an increasingly likely outcome with the two parties seeming to be unable to find a deal.
Moussa Sissoko, has now claimed that Barcelona have threatened to leave the player out of the squad until an agreement is reached.
“We are not here to fuel debates on social media, but the truth must be told. Yes, we have demands, but we have already shown that Ousmane’s career options were not dictated by money, otherwise he would not be here.” he said.
“So if Barcelona wanted to negotiate, they could try to sit at the table with us to discuss.”
“Except that there are no discussions and only threats not to play in their team anymore. And this is forbidden. We will seek the rights of Ousmane Dembele if necessary.”
“It’s a pressure move that does not work with people like us. Maybe it can work with agents who have friends with Barcelona. This is not my case, I am here to protect the interests of my player,” added Sissoko.
As for Dembele’s future, the agent wanted to make it clear that he has not decided anything yet.
“We do not know what we are going to do, nothing has been done,” he said
