Ousmane Dembélé has rarely played for FC Barcelona recently. The reason for this is neither a lack of performance nor an injury, but an associated payment to Dortmund.

No appearances: Ousmane Dembélé has played just 33 minutes in the last two games of the season for FC Barcelona. The reason for this: A clever financial trick by the Catalans, with which they want to avoid a bonus payment to BVB. Barcelona had brought Dembélé from Dortmund in 2017 for 140 million euros – some contractual clauses, however, subsequently drive the transfer fee even higher.

Special clause: The Catalan sports newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” reports that Dembélé’s 150th competitive game for FC Barcelona will cost 1.5 million euros to BVB. In order not to have to pay the sum, the Catalans gave up Dembélé at the end of the season. The Frenchman has made exactly 149 appearances in red and blue – Barcelona do not have to pay millions more. for now. Because that assumes that Dembélé will not play another competitive game for Barcelona in the future.

Barca farewell? That’s quite a possibility though as Dembélé’s contract expires in June. Instead of an extension, there was always a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the room.
