Spanish press reports revealed that the French international, Othman Dembele, attended Barcelona’s training, despite the expiration of his contract with the Catalan club at the end of last season, due to the failure of the two parties to reach a declared agreement regarding his continuation in the team.

According to the newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”, Ousmane Dembele was seen in group training through a video broadcast by one of his colleagues via Instagram, in which he revealed his presence next to Frank Kessie, the new Barcelona player.

Gabonese international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang posted a video on his social media accounts, in which Dembele appeared to change his clothes in Barcelona’s dressing room, accompanied by his compatriot Samuel Umtiti, Ivorian midfielder, and newcomer Frank Kessie.


The 25-year-old returned last Sunday to the Catalan capital, according to a video spread on social media, in order to agree to sign a new contract with the Blaugrana for the next two seasons, with a 40% salary reduction compared to the old salary, according to reports.

Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea tried to sign the French winger, but the decision to renew his contract with Barcelona was the player’s choice from the start.

Dembele joined Barcelona in the summer of 2017, from Borussia Dortmund, in order to compensate for the departure of Brazilian star Neymar at the time to Paris Saint-Germain.
