Xavi confirms that Dembele will leave: We cannot compete with that offer


Ousmane Dembele is expected to be the next to leave Barcelona and will return to Ligue 1.

Paris Saint Germain has paid the player’s clause of 50 million euros and now everyone is waiting for his officialization.

Even the coach of Barcelona, Xavi Hernandez, spoke after the victory over Milan 0-1 about Dembele’s future, stressing that the Frenchman has asked to leave for PSG.

“I will be clear, Dembelé has asked us to leave. He told us that there is a proposal from PSG, that they called him from there and he was very direct, it’s a personal decision and we can’t do anything”.

“It hurts me a lot because we took a lot of care of him so that he was happy and continued to make a difference, but he has this proposal, he said he wants to leave and that’s why he didn’t play,” said Xavi.


Then the coach said that Barcelona has no chance to compete with PSG’s offer and that’s why they have nothing to do.

“It is the law of the market, we cannot compete with this proposal, it is beyond our means and I wish him all the luck in the world because he has given us a lot, at least when I was coach”

“I’m a little disappointed, yes, but he told us that he already spoke to Luis Enrique and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and there was no way to convince him, we tried, but the decision was made. I saw he was so happy that he wasn’t, I was waiting for him”, concluded the Catalan coach.
