The Frenchman has explained that his first intention has always been to continue at FC Barcelona

After putting an end to one of the great soap operas of this summer, Ousmane Dembélé is back in the Barça shirt for a new term. The Frenchman was presented at the Ciutat Esportiva after signing the new contract that binds him to Barça until June 30, 2024.

"It has always been my first choice to stay" explained Dembélé about his decision to stay at the club. The Frenchman went on to say that Barça has been his choice of the club since he was a child, implying that for him there have been no doubts at any time about the decision. His statements also give cause for some surprise, as they come at odds with the fact that he took most of the last few weeks to come to his eventual decision. He did not want to comment on the long wait for his decision though and only wanted to reiterate his willingness to continue to try to get the most out of next season.

"It has been very long but now everyone is happy and very excited about the new season. I want to win many titles and I will give the maximum for the club and for my teammates," he said to conclude the brief presentation ceremony.
