Chelsea can reportedly sign Ousmane Dembele for €50m in the next summer transfer window. The forward was also the target for the Blues this summer.
However, he ended up signing a new contract with Barcelona. Although, he will have the chance to leave next summer for a reduced price.
CHELSEA AND OUSMANE DEMBELE TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Chelsea target Ousmane Dembele will have a release clause of €50m. The clause will be activated in the next summer transfer window. Hence, the Blues are likely to try to sign him again. This summer reports in France suggested that Thomas Tuchel tried signing him on a free transfer. However, he ended up signing a contract extension at Barcelona.
Thomas Tuchel also ended up getting sacked as Chelsea manager. However, it looks like the story has not ended here. Since Dembele has signed an extension on reduced terms, he has a clause that allows him to leave for 50m in the next summer transfer window. Hence, it looks like Todd Boehly and Graham Potter are likely going to monitor his situation at the La Liga club.
THE FRENCHMAN NEEDS TO STAY AT BARCELONA TO CONTINUE HIS CAREER DEVELOPMENT
The current situation at Chelsea is far from ideal. At the moment, Todd Boehely is learning how the football world works. Hence, Ousmane Dembele must stay in Barcelona. A few years ago, the winger was continuously nursing injuries. However, under Xavi, he has started playing well and has avoided any major injuries. This has meant that the player has got regular game time this season.
The situation is perfect for Ousmane Dembele at Barcelona currently. It will also help him play regular games ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar this year. However, at Chelsea, Graham Potter is going to analyze the problems and then plan for the January transfer window. Therefore, Dembele must first focus on winning the World Cup with France and finishing the season with Barcelona.
However, if Ousmane Dembele continues his good form, many European clubs including Chelsea will try to sign him in the next summer transfer window. A quality player in the form of Dembele for 50m is a risk worth taking.
