Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele signed a new deal with Barcelona after a very long talk. He will sign until 2024, it’s a two-year deal. The Contract is being checked by lawyers in order to sign this week.
Dembele accepted a 40% reduction in his wages. Xavi Hernández is crucial for this deal as he wanted the French International on the squad.
The two-footed French forward currently earns £210,000 per week and £10,900,000 yearly. This huge salary was a matter of headache for Barcelona following the financial crisis at the club. The club wanted Dembele to stay with the club but with a reduced salary. After a tough negotiation for about 6 months with the club and agents, they finally opted for a wage cut.
Dembele was a free agent but he’s been spotted in the Barcelona dressing room after turning up at the club on Tuesday. All thanks to Aubameyang insta story. The striker posted a video on Instagram and Dembele can be seen smiling away in the background.
