Barcelona will soon begin negotiations with 25-year-old World Cup winner Ousmane Dembele over a new contract.

According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Ousmane Dembele will soon begin discussions with Barcelona over a new contract. The Catalan giants want to secure the 25-year-old World Cup winner’s situation as soon as possible. Meanwhile, his market value has risen to €60 million.

Ousmane Dembele has resurrected his career since Xavi Hernandez took charge as the Barcelona manager. The French international was a directionless player for much of his professional career. But he has turned his fortunes around under Xavi’s tutelage, with the Barcelona manager striking the right cord with him. And his market value has risen to €60 million during this time.

The 25-year-old has also enjoyed a solid 2022/23 season thus far, managing eight goals and seven assists in 28 appearances. But the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is in the final 18 months of his Barcelona contract. And such a situation has captured the attention of several European bigwigs.

Recent reports have linked him with a few familiar suitors in the last few weeks. Clubs like Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, and Manchester United are keen on signing the Barcelona attacker. But the Catalan giants are keen on keeping hold of the Frenchman beyond the summer transfer window.

Widespread reports have suggested that Barcelona will look to secure Dembele’s long-term future. And according to SPORT, the Catalan giants are ready to open discussions over a new contract. In addition, Barcelona will look to avoid making the mistakes from the last time they tried to tie him to a new deal.

Dembele’s previous contract ran out last summer before he signed a new deal with Barcelona in July. And the Blaugrana will prefer not to see the 25-year-old World Cup winner become a free agent again. Meanwhile, Barcelona will reportedly demand much more than his market value of €60 million.
