Messi to decide Dembele’s future at Barcelona
Messi future at Barcelona
Lionel Messi would decide if Barcelona will retain or sell Ousmane Dembele this summer.
Spanish sports newspaper, Marca reports that Dembele, who endured a mixed first season at the Nou Camp, could still leave the club.
The France youngster arrived Barcelona last summer on a £138m deal from Borussia Dortmund, scoring just three goals.
The 21-year-old suffered a serious hamstring injury that hampered his early days in Spain.
Now back fit and ready for the new season, Dembele will be hoping to impress manager Ernesto Valverde only if Messi wants him to stay.
And he may well have to hit the ground running alongside Lionel Messi if he is to remain at the club.
Marca claim there is still a chance of Dembele leaving Barcelona.
PSG would be the most likely destination for the France international were he to leave on a permanent deal.
But loan moves could also be an option.
Arsenal were heavily linked with the player before the Premier League’s transfer window closed two weeks ago.
