The agent of Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has, on Friday, spoken out over his client’s future once more.
The long-running saga surrounding the future of wide-man Dembele is of course primed to come to an imminent conclusion.
This comes with the Frenchman, amid a frankly underwhelming stint at the Camp Nou to date, set to see the terms of his contract expire come the end of the month.
Owing to a head-turning resurgence over the 2nd half of the campaign, it is understood that Xavi Hernandez and co. have changed their tune when it comes to Dembele’s future, now hopeful of the Frenchman staying put.
The intentions of the 25-year-old himself, though, have long remained unclear, with the likes of Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester United all waiting in the wings in the case of Dembele opting for a new challenge.
‘The best option…’
Speaking to the media on Friday, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his client’s future was put to Dembele’s agent.
And Moussa Sissoko was quick to assure that a definitive decision, as of yet, has not been made, with all potential avenues remaining ‘open’ ahead of next season.
“We’re not going to enter into endless speculation,“ Sissoko explained to Goal.
“When the time is right, Ousmane will take the best option. We are and always have been respectful to all the clubs and we will continue in the same way as long as the process continues.”
