Dembele agent: Barcelona contract talks full of threats

The agent of Ousmane Dembele says negotiations with Barcelona have been full of "threats" as his contract runs down.

Moussa Sissoko, Dembele's agent, says Barcelona have threatened to leave the player out of the team until a deal is reached.

"We are not here to feed debates on social media but the truth must be told. Yes, we have demanding requirements, but we have already shown that Ousmane's career options were not dictated by money, otherwise he would not be here," he told RMC.

"So, if Barcelona had wanted to negotiate, they could have tried to sit down at the table with us to discuss.

"Except that there is no discussion and only threats not to play in their team anymore. And that is prohibited. We will assert Ousmane Dembele's rights if necessary.

"It's a pressure move that doesn't work with people like us. Perhaps it can work with agents who have friends with Barcelona. This isn't my case, I'm here to defend the interests of my player," added Sissoko.

As for Dembele's future, the agent wanted to make it clear that he still hasn't decided anything.

"We don't know what we are going to do, nothing has been done," he said.

"But the hierarchy are only losing Ousmane. From the beginning we showed that we wanted to discuss, with clear conditions, but without closing the door."
