According to stunning new rumors, Ousmanne Dembele has decided to join Chelsea.
After his contract with Barcelona expires, Dembele, who had a fine run at the conclusion of last season, will join the Blues on a free transfer.
Staying at Barcelona or joining French giants Paris Saint-Germain were two choices for the 25-year-old.
Dembele, though, has opted to rejoin with his former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, according to Sunsport. Barcelona, which paid £125 million to recruit Dembele from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, is expected to be the biggest loser in the transaction.
However, because to the club’s financial position, they need to clear away their large pay bill, which has culminated in Phillipe Coutinho’s permanent sale to Aston Villa.
Dembele has had a difficult time at Barcelona, scoring 32 goals and assisting on 34 occasions. Throughout his career as a Catalan, he has been plagued by ailments that have put him on the sidelines for extended periods of time.
