Written by Patrick Echatah

FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta has spoken regarding the situation with Ousmane Dembélé. The Frenchman has a contract expiring at the end of the season, but he performed well in the last match.

Dembélé refused to extend his contract with Barcelona over the winter, prompting speculation that he might be permanently benched by the club.

Despite opposition from some members of the media and fans, Barcelona’s manager, Xavi, has stayed with Dembélé. He was a vital figure in deciding whether or not Dembélé would be able to play this season. 

Dembélé scored one goal and assisted on two others in a 4-0 win over Athletic Club. He appeared to be eager to contribute, and his hug with Xavi after his goal demonstrated true affection. 

“Dembélé is aware of our offer, and we have always wished for him to stay; we hope that he reconsiders in the end,” Laporta added. 

In addition, the president spoke of Pedri, who sparkled in the Catalans’ win as well.

“Pedri is called to be one of the best players in the world, if not the best, but he knows he has to work a lot,” he said.

Pedri has left an impression on all of us during the last year. Even the most seasoned observers, such as veteran full-back Dani Alves, are astounded by the 19-year-old midfielder’s ability to dazzle in all aspects of the game.

The Brazil international commented on the performance from Pedri over the weekend. He, like the rest of us, was amazed by the Spaniard’s effort in the 4-0 win over Athletic.

“Through luck, I have been with people of that level, but he is one who is most assimilated to those,” he said

“I have had to luck to be able to live with them. We are seeing a player who is amazing.”
