Barcelona has recently made extending Ousmane Dembele’s contract a priority, and the club intends to speak with the Frenchman about a new contract in the coming weeks.
Barca will finally start renewing some of its stars ahead of the summer transfer window, thanks to the election of Joan Laporta as the club’s new president.
Dembele’s current contract expires at the end of next season, so Barcelona will want to lock him down before he enters his final year.
Dembele’s extension is a priority for the club, according to COPE, and they know he’s happy at Barcelona, taking care of himself well, and looking “like a new player.”
Dembele has finally managed to remain healthy in 2020-21, making 35 appearances in all competitions and contributing nine goals and four assists.
After overcoming injury issues that troubled him during his tenure at Camp Nou, the Frenchman is now a key member of Ronald Koeman’s starting XI.
Dembele was rumored to be on the verge of leaving Barcelona in the summer, but he opted to stay and seems to have turned his fortunes around.
