Moussa Sissoko met with the representatives of FC Barcelona to continue negotiating the renewal of the French striker.
It is not a simple negotiation, but the economic positions are getting closer, and in the club, the hope of reaching an agreement increases.
The future of Ousmane Dembele continues to change with respect to the situation in January, where he was more outside than inside when Mateu Alemany himself said that he either renewed or left. Now, after recovering his performance on the pitch, thanks to the trust given by coach Xavi Hernández, his future plans seem to have changed, and further proof of this could be the presence of Moussa Sissoko, the player’s agent, in Barcelona. Tonight there was a new meeting, a dinner, between the representatives of the Barça club and the agents of the French striker to continue looking for a good meeting point for both parties and to unlock the renewal.
After the meeting held a month ago in Morocco by Mateu Alemany and Moussa Sissoko, the first after the controversy over the winter market, a new meeting took place tonight between the club and the footballer’s agents to continue negotiating in search of an agreement. Although the two parties started from very distant positions in the economic field, Dembele’s will to stay, together with Xavi’s request to be able to retain the player, has led to this approach in search of an agreement. At the close of this edition, both parties were still meeting after dinner, and an imminent agreement was not foreseen, despite the fact that the will of the two parties now does coincide. Dembele wants to continue, and Barça wants him to continue, but not at any price.
Moussa Sissoko, the Frenchman’s representative, landed yesterday in Barcelona to prepare for this new meeting with representatives of the Barça to address the forward’s future. It should be remembered that Dembele’s contract ends next June, so if his intention is to continue at FC Barcelona next season, there should be a renewal of his contract.
