PSG aims to poach Barcelona forward ahead of renewal


FC Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has been back in the headlines in recent weeks after reports emerged claiming that he is on his way to a contract renewal with the Catalan giants. However, more recent reports have revealed that Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain may be able to poach him off the hands of his current club.

Dembele’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, and as of the winter transfer window, it was believed that he was on his way out of the Camp Nou. However, manager Xavi Hernandez has stuck to his stance about wanting the winger to stay, and has since given him a substantial amount of time on the pitch.

As such, talks were reopened in April between the club and the player’s agent, Moussa Sissoko. It appeared as though it was only a matter of time before the renewal is announced, but Marca reports that French media think otherwise.
