There is no doubt that Dembele is the largest parallel import in Barcelona's history. He is worth 146 million euros, but is now the fifth candidate for the position of winger. "Marca" pointed out that Dembele's goal shortage has been as long as a year.

"Daily Sports" pointed out on the front page today that Barcelona has already ordered Dembele. If Dembele wants to stay on the team, he must accept the reality of becoming a fifth winger. If Dembele still refuses to renew his contract for another year, Barcelona will once again put him on the transfer market during the winter transfer period. After cleaning Dembele, Barcelona went after Depay and Eric Garcia.
