Dembele breaks his silence on Barca exit rumors

Transfer: Ousmane Dembele finally breaks his silence on purported Barcelona exit

June 18, 2022 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Frenchman has addressed claims that he is on the verge of securing a move out of Camp Nou.

Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has hinted staying at the club amid rumors of a purported move to Chelsea in the Premier League. In a video that surfaced on the internet over the weekend, the 25-year-old winger was seen telling a fan that he was going to stay at Camp Nou for the foreseeable future at least.

Last season, Dembele had an unfair share of injury troubles but still came good for Barca, as he finished the season with the most assists in La Liga (13) despite starting only nine matches. The French winger has been heralded among the best performers since the arrival of Xavi and was an instrumental figure in the side as the Catalans secured a second place finish in La Liga.

Nevertheless, the player's future with the Spanish heavyweights has been in doubt and Premier League giants Chelsea as said to be keen on securing the service of the ex-Borussia Dortmund sensation. The Blues are understood to be pushing for a deal that will bring the Frenchman to Stamford Bridge. With the player having previously worked with manager Thomas Tuchel during his Dortmund days, there is optimism that he could be convinced to make the move to the Premier League. According to reports from Spain, the Barcelona player is expected to make his final decision after returning from his holiday.

In hindsight, a video footage that circulated on social media over the weekend has fuelled the rumour mill. A Barcelona fan who encountered Dembele on vacation took the time in their brief encounter to learn more about what was going on, and his comments were pretty crucial. Dembele's response seems to indicate that he is comfortable in Spain, hinting at potentially staying at Barca.
