“Dembélé is better than Mbappé”, Barça insists

FC Barcelona continues to push for Ousmane Dembélé by not ceasing to extol the merits of the French international.

121 matches, 31 goals, 20 assists. This is the balance sheet ofOusmane Dembele since his arrival at Barcelona four and a half years ago. Very often injured, the French international has not yet given the full measure of his talent, or at least not over time. But that does not prevent the Catalan club from still believing in him, and to insist that the former Dortmund player extend his contract, he who will be free in 2022.

“We have a very good relationship with Dembélé and he wants to stay, said Joan Laporta to TV3. We also want him because he’s a great player. These are situations that require negotiation with representatives who want the best for the player. I am enthusiastic about Dembélé, he is better than Mbappé. “

Short, Barça continues to praise Dembélé. As a reminder, here is what Xavi said about the native of Vernon when he arrived at the club last month: ” In his post, if he works hard and feels good, he is the best player in the world. “

Xavi wants help

It should be remembered that Barça invested a fortune in Dembélé (135 million euros), and beyond the fact that seeing him go free would be a terrible failure, the Blaugranas do not have a lot of money to spend to recruit a possible replacement.

“Xavi asked us to strengthen the workforce and we will try to do it, but at the moment we have no pay margin, summarized Laporta. Therefore, at the moment it is not possible but we have to let the sports management do their job. A player is still targeted: Ferran Torres, the Manchester City striker. He is one of the players that sports management has their sights set on, but there are many more. You have to wait and see how everything goes. “
