PSG shows interest in Dembele
Tensions between Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona have been rising.
Paris Saint-Germain are still hounding Barcelona, and are now showing interest in winger Ousmane Dembele, according to Marca. This comes amid a separate attempt to hijack the transfer of Georginio Wijnaldum.
PSG, who irked Barcelona earlier this year by starting talks over a possible transfer for Lionel Messi, knows Dembele’s contract will expire in 2022 and wants to give him a reason to delay a new deal – a move that will upset Joan Laporta and the Blaugrana.
