Dembele could come full circle against Athletic

How has the situation changed? Ousmane Dembele of the last game against athletic club. In January, when the FCBarcelona Facing the Basque team in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey (3-2 for the lions, who won the draw in added time), the French striker was absent from the team while waiting for his future be resolved. Barca had decided to transfer him due to the player’s refusal not to accept the renewal proposal. Additionally, he publicly announced that he would no longer perform. The first game he canceled was precisely the Cup against the rojiblanco team.

But his situation changed dramatically in early February. With the market closed, Ousmane continued in the Barca until the end of the season because he decided to decline the offers that came to him in the last days of January. He had six months left on his contract with Barca and Xavi played a key role in overriding his veto. In the offices they were more in favor of leaving him in the stands, but the coach strongly believes in his potential. Dembélé has already entered the group against Atlético de Madrid, he played again against Espanyol, Napoli – he took part in both matches – and started at Mestalla against Valencia.

At the moment it seems that Adama Traore He will be ahead of the Frenchman, but Xavi is keeping him as a very solid alternative to take over for the two wingers in an intense schedule marked by the Europa League. Adama and Ferran Torres They were starters in Naples and Dembélé is again aiming to play from the start to give some air.
