The dome of FC Barcelona, led by Joan Laporta, were present this Tuesday at the press conference of the Forensic to publicize the financial situation of the club after the closing of the transfer market. In addition, he also spoke about French Ousmane Dembele, who was not finally transferred to another club, but leaves some uncertainty in the leaders due to his attitude at the time of making a decision.

“We made him a very good renewal offer. The player said no. First alleging that it was not a money issue, but then he did focus on the economic aspect. That was when the issue got stuck. The agent didn’t tell us anything and that has consequences for the club.”Joan Laporta declared to the media.

It should be highlighted that “The mosquito” demanded a salary of 200 million euros for the next five years and a high bonus for his agent, Moussa Sissoko. It was flatly rejected by Barcelona, ​​since they were looking for a downward extension of the contract to leave salary margin and thus incorporate new players.

“I am very surprised that he did not accept a proposal that he had from an English club. He did not want. It didn’t make sense because it wasn’t good for him or for the club. It would have allowed us to work more calmly in the market”, the president pointed out.

In the last hours of the market, the club received several proposals from two English clubs, as is the case of Chelsea y el Tottenham. In addition, the international media also pointed to a negotiation of the Paris Saint Germain, but it was rejected by Barcelona because they offered players and not money.

The Dembélé thing is difficult to understand. Dembélé is in the team and Xavi has to build a competitive squad with players who have a future at this club. We think that Dembélé already has a contract with another club, they have insinuated that to us. What we will do is defend the interests of the club”, concluded the Barça president.

In this way, the future of the 24-year-old French player remains a real unknown, since in the next few days the club will decide what will go through the attacker, since there is a possibility that he will be sent to the stands for the remainder of season or give him the letter of freedom.

On the other hand, the azulgranas closed the transfer market with a flourish with the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Gabonese striker who landed in Barcelona with the letter of freedom, after negotiating his departure with Arsenal from England.

In this way, Joan Laporta made four reinforcements in the month of January and three of them were strikers from the Premier League; as is the case with Ferran Torres, Adama Traoré and the already mentioned Aubameyang. For his part, the presentation of the Spanish striker is scheduled for this week and the Gabonese will be announced in the next few hours as a new Barça player.
