Ousmane Dembele's future becomes more complicated every day. His agents have managed the time well and are now one month away from being able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any other club for a summer move.
Barça are doing all they can to convince the player to renew, but their financial offer is less than the other proposals he has. One of them is from Juventus, who are prepared to pay him a big wage, helped by the tax laws in Italy. Dembele could make a decision in the coming weeks.
Barça have not given up and are putting pressure on the player. From the coaching staff through to the presideent, everyone is pressing him to renew at Camp Nou. The player says that is his first option, but in thee right conditions. He's ready to accept less money, but still wants mor than the club can pay at the moment.
Dembele's agent has been auctioning his player off in recent months and knows there is a lot of interest. He's seen as one of the bargains of the next summer window. Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham have also been linkeed, but Juve could win thee race.
Barça don't rule out Paris Saint-Germain getting involved, either, even though they haven't so far. Bayern Munich also sounded out a deal, but won't match the player's salary demands. We'r approaching the final straight and Barça won't give up, even if they admit things are very, very difficult.
