Barcelona have again told Ousmane Dembele to find another club before the transfer deadline despite the player’s wish to stay.
Dembele’s representatives Moussa Sissoko and Marco Lichtsteiner have met with Barca boss Xavi and technical director Jordi Cruyff for further talks over his future.
His agents reinforced the message that Dembele wants to play for Barcelona at least until the end of his contract and is 100 per cent committed to the cause.
He is also willing to extend his contract, which expires in the summer, but not on the current terms that have been offered, which includes a considerable pay cut.
But Barca said again that, if he will not sign the deal already offered, then he must find another club to buy him – and they will help him to do it.
