Barcelona and Dembele agents agree more talks ahead of 'final decision'

Barcelona and agents for Ousmane Dembele broke up from yesterday's meeting agreeing to speak again this week.

Moussa Sissoko touched down in Barcelona on Monday morning and went into a meeting with Barca sporting director Mateu Alemany in the afternoon.

Sport says Alemany did not present any new offer in this meeting to pressure the French player, but it was the player's own agent who explained to the sports department that if Barcelona maintained the conditions offered that have been on the table for several months, Dembélé could not accept them.

Dembele has several proposals and is delaying any decision due to his desire to continue at Barça, but he hopes that the club will make an effort to approach the financial offers that have arrived.

“Under these conditions, he will not continue," said the player's agent.

Representatives for Barcelona explained the complications they have in terms of making an improved offer and fitting into the financial fair play scheme imposed by LaLiga.

Barça refused to present a new offer or a future one, but the two parties have given themselves a couple of days to make a final decision.
