Chelsea have been given the green light to complete £250,000-a-week deal
It has now been claimed that Chelsea have been given the green light to make a move and offer Ousmane Dembele a contract
Despite the fact the club are still in the midst of takeover talks, and despite the fact that no deals can officially be confirmed, It doesnt stop the club making moves to try and get some players pre-signed up.
It is obvious that the new owners will be announced very soon and it is also very obvious that new players will be coming to the club in the transfer window, and Dembele is a plan that is all over the transfer headlines
The France forward, 24, has failed to agree a new contract at the Nou Camp, with his current deal set to expire this summer, and that has led to alot of speculation that he could come to the Premier League
Now, IcFootballnews has learned that Barca have given up hope of trying to keep Dembele at the club and will allow him to leave the club at the end of the season and get his £250,000-a-week wages off the bill
The Spaniards knows that they will be looking to bring a few players to the club – but will need to make some space first as they need to get that wage budget down
It would be an interesting signing for Chelsea, as we would all be interested to see just how he would manage to play in the Premier League when he has been unable to succeed in La Liga
He could be a world class player, but we firmly believe that he would not be able to make an impact for Chelsea, he is not the same player.
Xavi may want him to stay at the club – but that is because the Barca boss will not have the funds to sign an immediate replacement
But as we said – this will be an interesting one to keep an eye on as there will continue to be alot of speculation about the long-term future of the Frenchman guys
