Barcelona: Xavi

Barcelona manager Xavi revealed that his burgeoning relationship with Ousmane Dembele could open talks about a new contract with the club. He believes that their relationship has improved after Xavi requested the board to allow Dembele back into contention for a starting berth. Dembele has said that he is open to discussing his future as he is enjoying his life under Xavi.

“Ousmane’s contract is up in June and it’s a matter that’s between the club and him. I see him as being happy. He’s acting like a true professional. I’m very happy with him,” Barcelona manager Xavi said. “Even when he knew he wasn’t in the squad, he’s been a model professional. I haven’t had the slightest problem with Ousmane. I’ve heard all sorts of things: that he hasn’t been professional and that he hasn’t looked after himself. I can tell you now that it’s the complete opposite, he’s looking after himself, is professional, has been training well, and is positive in and around the group.”

“That’s why we – and I want to stress that it’s not just me but the club too – have decided that he’s able to play with the team. Had he been a bad professional, we may have decided on something else, but he’s been a true professional and a role model in terms of the way he’s carried himself within the group, and that’s ultimately what matters,” he added. “We’ll have to see what happens between now and the end of the season. It’s down to the club and it’s down to him. He’s an important player and one I like.”
