However, the latest report on the matter says the forward does not want to go to PSG. He wants to stay at Barça and stay under Xavi’s orders.
Dembélé has long been linked with PSG. Last year, he did not renew his contract with Barcelona and was free to go wherever he wanted. Despite a lot of reported interest and rumors, the offer from PSG never seemed to materialize. In the end, the winger went back to Barcelona.
Now, there are fresh rumors that Dembélé is wanted by PSG. But the winger and his agent are said to not have heard anything concrete from the French club, and regardless, prefer staying in Barcelona.
PSG, for their part, could be losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar this summer. Their plan is to look for attackers to surround Kylian Mbappé with.
Some rumored names apart from Dembélé are: Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (Tottenham Hotspur)
Xavi has told reporters that FC Barcelona won’t need to go into the transfer market to find another left-back after Jordi Alba’s departure. “We won’t sign a new left back this summer to replace Alba; we have Alejandro Balde and Marcos Alonso,” Xavi said.
Balde is the youth player turned starter since this season, who has exploded onto the scene and even got a call-up from Spain for the FIFA World Cup.
Alonso is the veteran signed last year from Chelsea. His normal position coming into last season was left-back, but in his first season at Barça, he’s played mostly as a central defender.
