According to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna in France, FC Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele has decided to join Paris Saint-Germain.
On July 6, transfer market specialist Aouna was among the first to suggest that Dembele had become a priority signing for the Qatari-owned Ligue 1 giants.
RMC Sport claimed on Friday that the 26-year-old was just a step away from switching allegiances.
Sunday then saw news from multiple sources spread detailing how Barca felt “pessimistic” that their €105 million ($115 million) signing, ironically bought with the money the Catalans received from PSG for Neymar in 2017, would stay with them.
Later on Sunday evening, L’Equipe reported that the Dembele camp had decided to leave Barca when they learned that the Blaugrana had offered him and Gavi to PSG as part of a potential swap deal for Kylian Mbappe.
L’Equipe added that Dembele’s transfer was “imminent”, and that agreeing personal terms with the winger was the only thing preventing the deal from being finalized.
According to Aouna, this box has now been ticked with Dembele deciding to join PSG until 2028.
