Ousmane Dembele has been officially unemployed since July 1, 2022 yesterday. However, it seems to make Barcelona get one particular advantage.
The drama about Ousmane Dembele ‘s future at Barcelona is not over yet.
After failing to reach an agreement between the two parties, Dembele now officially holds the status of a free transfer player.
Dembele’s contract at Barcelona has officially expired on June 30, 2022 yesterday after serving a contract for five years.
That way, Dembele can go to any club he wants for free or at no cost.
At first glance, Dembele’s decision is clearly a loss for Barcelona .
The reason is, Xavi Hernandez really wants Dembele to be part of his squad next season.
What’s more, the performance https://open.firstory.me/user/minions2 of the French winger began to improve in the second half of the 2021-2022 season.
However, judging from Dembele’s current status as a free agent, Barcelona actually has one advantage.
Reported by BolaSport.com from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona inevitably have to act like a new club for Dembele.
That’s because Dembele is now available as a free transfer player who can go to any club.
Thus, the initial negotiation process to extend the contract can shift to the realm of offering to join a new club.
Dembele can also be interpreted as a new player who must follow Barcelona ‘s new policy .
If you want to stay in Barcelona , the former Borussia Dortmund winger will inevitably have to accept a 40 percent salary cut.
The reason is, the policy was implemented by the Blaugrana to save their finances.
Every new player who will join Barcelona inevitably has to accept a salary cut of 40 percent.
This condition will certainly be an advantage for Barcelona if Dembele wants to stay at Camp Nou.
However, this policy can also be a double-edged sword if Dembele is full of interest in the 2022 summer transfer market .
Barcelona will lose its appeal and Dembele will join another club that offers a more attractive salary.
Until now, Dembele has reportedly been targeted by a number of big European clubs, such as Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea
