Barcelona boss Xavi confirms Chelsea, Manchester United target’s exit

Barcelona boss Xavi has admitted that Ousmane Dembele will be sold this month unless he signs a new deal.

Dembele has been linked with Manchester United as well as other clubs, like Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle and Liverpool.

Dembele’s agent Moussa Sissoko claims Barca are ‘losing’ the France winger due to their blunt attitude but admits the 24-year-old has ‘high demands’ on pay.

Now Nou Camp boss Xavi says he has made it clear to Dembele that this month’s transfer window is his D-Day.

Xavi said: “What I can say is that we are in a complex and difficult situation.

“The club has decided that if he does not renew we have to make a decision with him.

“It’s not easy but Mateu Alemany (Barca chief executive) has been negotiating with his representative for five months and we can’t wait any longer.”
