The renovation of Ousmane Dembélé is stalled

by archysport

BarcelonaFrom January 1, Ousmane Dembélé will be free to negotiate with the club of his choice. Despite the efforts of the Barça club to renew it, a meeting was held yesterday between Barça and the player’s representative, Moussa Sissoko, which did not serve to bring the positions between the two sides closer, but rather the opposite. While the current context of the Barça entity calls for a downward renewal of the Frenchman’s fixed salary, his representative does not abandon his position of strength and defends better compensation for renewal, arguing that he remains a footballer with projection.

Barça defends that the negotiations are not broken, although it admits that the meeting ended far from an agreement. The player’s agent knows that a succulent commission would be taken away if Dembélé did not renew and signed in the summer for any other club without having to pay a transfer to Barça. Barça have not yet thrown in the towel, and they justify that the refusal to renew is part of a negotiation strategy. But if no agreement is reached between the two parties, new scenarios will open up in this winter market regarding the future of Dembélé, as Barça do not want to be seen as the French, for whom they are going. paying more than 100 million transfers in the summer of 2017 – and which has one of the highest records in the squad -, the club leaves without leaving any compensation in the coffers.

On the other hand, renewing the Frenchman is a decisive decision not only in terms of sports, but also because it would allow him to earn a salary margin, as expanding the player’s bond would allow him to defer part of his salary from the current season in more years. space the amortization of the cost of your signing. They are two crucial elements in gaining oxygen in the fair play financial and to be able to register new soccer players, like Ferran Torres.

Three more infections at Barça

On the other hand, Barça confirmed three more positives yesterday. These are precisely Dembélé, Umtiti and Gavi. They join the already known contagions of Jordi Alba, Lenglet, Alves and Balde. In total, seven coronavirus casualties that, with the sanctioned and the injured, turn the lineup of the match against Mallorca on Sunday into a puzzle.

At the moment, the Egarenc coach has a fortnight of casualties for the duel against the Balearic team. To those already mentioned by coronavirus must be added that of Sergio Busquets for sanction – completes cycle for accumulation of yellow cards, as well as Gavi, one of the players who tested positive yesterday – and those of the injured Memphis, Ansu Fati, Braithwaite and Sergi Roberto. Pedri, who has not played since September 29, is already training normally, but his presence against Mallorca is not yet assured. It is also doubtful Sergiño Dest, who has already missed the last few games due to an overload on the adductors. In addition, the American side tested negative yesterday after undergoing an antigen test, but today he will know the results of the PCR tests. The same goes for Araujo, Piqué, Coutinho and Neto. On the other hand, Dani Alves (infected with coronavirus) and Ferran Torres (injured) could not have been against Mallorca either because the deadline to register new players is not open until January 3.

The regulations in case of coronavirus

Although the regulations stipulated by the League and the Spanish Football Federation imply that there must be at least seven players with a first team record during the course of a match, the figure is reduced to five when there are casualties as a result of the coronavirus. A minimum call-up of 13 players is also allowed, which, if you have only five first team players, can be completed with eight players from the branch. On the other hand, there is a two-game limit that a team can postpone because of the covid.

For its part, Mallorca has so far reported seven infections, corresponding to four players and three members of the coaching staff, without having transcended their identity. Beyond Barça and the Balearic Islands, there are several teams affected by outbreaks. This is the case of Real Madrid, which yesterday announced four positives that will mean significant losses against Getafe: Courtois, Valverde, Camavinga and Vinicius.
