Ousmane Dembele is getting closer every day to his move to the Parc des Princes from Paris Saint-Germain.
According to L’Equipe newspaper, PSG sent a letter to Barcelona on Monday expressing their willingness and intention to pay the French winger’s release clause.
Although the deadline had expired on July 31, thanks to the sending of the letter, the French have five additional days to pay the 50 million. This is a private clause that he formulates in Dembele’s contract.
Although the sale through negotiations between the clubs is still on the table, PSG now has this up its sleeve, which invites even more pessimism in Barça.
What is clear in Paris is that paying 100 million euros is completely impossible.
Therefore, the transaction now falls into the dilemma of negotiation or using the five-day card to pay 50 million euros.
If nothing goes wrong, according to the French newspaper, Dembele will sign with the Parisians and the end of the soap opera will be known before the end of this week.
