Ousmane Dembele is in a difficult situation in Barcelona. When the club ask him to renew or leave, the French midfielder wants to fulfill his contract, and go on a free summer transfer.
After Matthew Alemany publicly confirmed Dembele’s comments on the matter today, the 24-year-old took to Instagram to clarify rumors that had been circulating last month.
“For four years I did not stop learning about myself. Gossip has been around for four years. People have been lying to me about shameful things with the intention of harming me. I have ignored it so far. Was it a mistake? Yes. From today, I will respond.
“I am 24 years old, and as men, I am flawed and imperfect. I have lived through difficult times, injuries, Covid has touched me. Outside of a small training session, my dad asked me to play and I was always obedient… without complaining.
“I am fully aware of my privilege to dedicate myself to the best work in the world. Also, my message is clear. I forbid anyone to give the impression that I am not involved in a sports project.
“I forbid anyone to express my intentions which I have never had. I forbid anyone to speak for me or speak for me, whom I completely trust. However, under the contract, I fully participate and use my team, my coach.
“I have always given my all for the players I work with and for all the communities… It is no longer there that will change that. I’m not a fraud, and I do not condone giving. ”
“As you know, there are discussions. I let my agent handle it, it’s his field. My job is football… just playing football, sharing happy times with colleagues and all members. Above all, let us focus on one thing: VICTORY ”
We’ll have to wait and see how Barcelona will handle the situation with the player, but one thing is clear: Dembele has no intention of leaving the club in the middle of the season.
