During Luuk de Jong’s presentation, Barca president Joan Laporta also spoke about other topics, like Ousmane Dembele.
“Mateu (Alemany) has told me that he’s organising a meeting with his agent. The relationship with Ousmane is very good, he feels loved and we want him to stay. He’s told me that he’s really looking forward to playing again and wearing Barcelona’s shirt. With everyone’s work, we’ll get this player, who has a lot of quality, back playing and playing consistently. Hopefully the bad moments won’t be back. There’s a plan at the club for Ousmane to show his talent and quality.”
The French winger is recovering from a knee tendon injury, suffered at Euro 2020 with France. He’s got two months more of recovery to go, but has been given the No 7 shirt for this season. Hopefully it can spell the start of a new era for him at the club.
His contract ends at the end of the year but Barcelona want to renew him.
