Ousmane Dembele was not injured, but there is no doubt that he was one of the most dangerous strikers in European football.
In full flight, it is like a deer gracefully releasing an enemy left in the river. Because Barcelona haven’t had a moment like this since he replaced Neymar in 2017.
According to AS, Barca’s new coach Xavi Hernandez considers the France keyplayer to be the cornerstone of his new project. Perhaps trust and a shift in medical personal could resurrect Dembele’s fate.
If his contract expires next summer, the big man will be able to communicate freely with other clubs from January 1st.
Sometimes, when Dembele regains his form, Xavi undoubtedly hopes to get the most out of him, and his actions as manager will convince Dembele that staying at the Camp Nou is the best option.
This requires a swift signing of a new contract, otherwise it is time for the club to cut the losses of players who have not reached their peak despite their promises.
