According to RMC Sport, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are close to finalizing the transfer of French international winger Ousmane Dembélé.
The World Cup winner’s release clause, which is valid until the end of the month and would limit his transfer to €50m, is anticipated to be activated by the Ligue 1 champions. The release clause for the former Rennes player will increase starting next week; therefore, the French side is eager to finalise a deal as soon as possible.
The 26-year-old, who joined the Blaugrana in 2017 after leaving Borussia Dortmund, is reportedly in advanced negotiations with PSG at this time. Luis Enrique, the team’s new head coach, and formerly of Barcelona, is eager to sign the Frenchman. According to RMC, Kylian Mbappé’s future is unaffected by Dembélé’s arrival because the club idealistically envisions an attacking three with the France captain on the left wing and the potential newcomer on the right side.
