The agent ‘delays process’ on the contract thanks to Manchester United’s interest – player makes plans clear

Ousmane Dembele’s agent has delayed contract negotiations with Barcelona due to interest from Manchester United.

It reports Sport today and explains that the situation is now progressing towards the Frenchman staying at the Camp Nou.

The newspaper explains that Barcelona were determined to leave Dembele in the stands until he signed a new contract, but there have been ‘important steps’ within the last few days to resolve the issue.

His continuity in the club is now ‘closer’ to be a reality as the Frenchman has told his agents he wants to stay in Barcelona.

They are now working to reach one “satisfactory agreement”, but there is a sense that the two parties are entering ‘the last straight’.

There is no final deal yet, but Barcelona are more optimistic than they have been in recent months, with Dembele appearing very likely he would take time off in the summer.

The striker has been linked with a number of clubs during that time, including Manchester United, who are long-term admirers of him.

The player’s willingness to sign a new deal has been key to the turnaround, as it has meant his agents have changed pace.

They were ‘delays the process’ due to the interest of Manchester United, Juventus and Chelsea, but their client has now made his intentions clear and they are working to satisfy them.

Although it will not be an easy negotiation, Barcelona hope that everything will be resolved at some point this month as’relationships are very good ‘ and Dembele is eager to sign a deal and pay the club back for the faith he has shown.
