Barca ‘face £131m fee for Dembele if he’s sold before end of contract’

Barcelona ‘face paying full £131m fee for Ousmane Dembele if they sell the winger before the end of his contract’

  • Barcelona paid £96million to sign Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund
  • Since last year’s deal they have been making their way through £35m of add-ons
  • They’ll reportedly have to pay full fee if he leaves before his deal expires in 2022

But avoiding footing the bill for the remaining £26m to be paid for subsequent appearance milestones, Champions League qualification, and trophies won looked to be one of the advantages of cashing in on the 21-year-old sooner rather than later.

But Die Welt claims the player’s contract stipulates that if he is sold before it expires in 2022 Barcelona would be liable to the full £35m of add-on payments originally agreed in the deal with Borussia Dortmund.

Dembele was an unused substitute by France in their friendly win over Uruguay on Tuesday.

He has fallen out of favour at Barcelona but despite suggestions in the Catalan media this week that he has been delivered an ultimatum to improve or be sold, the Die Welt revelations add to the sense that Barcelona would suffer massive losses if they sold him.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with the winger but Barcelona are sceptical about either club’s willingness to pay anywhere near the fee they paid last summer.
