Barcelona inform Dembele he must accept dramatic pay-cut to stay

Barcelona have made a final contract offer to Ousmane Dembele.

The France attacker is now a free agent after his Barca deal expired on Thursday.

Sport says Barcelona made it clear in the last meeting they had with Moussa Sissoko, Dembele's agent, that they would not be increasing their contract offer to him.

The last proposal was definitive. And what's more, to renew, Dembele has to accept a 40 per cent pay cut on the deal he was on, moving to the same level as Ansu Fati in the pay grade, to fit the new salary structure.

The last time they spoke was Monday.
