The coach spoke about the French winger who is out of contract at the end of the month

Xavi has admitted the ball is in Ousmane Dembele’s court over his contract renewal. The Barcelona coach helped arrange and was present at the meeting between the club and Dembele’s agent Moussa Sissoko on Monday but, going back to his holiday in the airport, spoke to El Chiringuito.

“The renewal is up to him,” said Xavi. The player has been considering his options for some time, with Barcelona hoping he stays but the winger is a free agent at the end of June unless he signs. 

It seems the other offers he has got have not convinced Dembele and the player, for his part is keen on staying.
