Barcelona seek to secure Dembele to new contract

Barcelona are seeking to secure Ousmane Dembele to a new contract.

Mundo Deportivo says a formal offer for a new deal, a second attempt in just a matter of months, will be tabled at the turn of the year.

Dembele's deal is currently set to run down in June 2022, and the same report indicates a mutual desire, albeit an open-minded one, to secure the star's future in Catalonia.

Manchester United's failure to land Jadon Sancho in a club-record deal opened the door for Dembele, and the same report claims that there is still a belief the deal may be revisited in the future.

Ansu Fati's ill-timed injury, however, means that his team-mate will stay at the Nou Camp in January - and Dembele will then ponder whether or not to put pen to paper.
