Mercato live – YB formalizes the departure of Aebischer to Bologna
the FC Barcelona will not be lenient towards Ousmane Dembele following failed negotiations over his extension, Xavi said on Saturday. “There are no other alternatives, there are still a few days left in this transfer window,” he added.
On Thursday, the club’s sporting director, Mateu Alemany, had asked the French international to « leave immediately » from the club, exasperated by the deadlock in negotiations over his contract, which expires in June. “It seems obvious that the player no longer wishes to continue his adventure here. […] We hope that a transfer will be possible before January 31,” Alemany added at a press conference.
« Dembouz » replied on Instagram, saying he would « not give in to blackmail » after being removed from the score sheet against Athletic Bilbao the same evening in the King’s Cup.
