Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has said yes to a move to Paris Saint Germain (PSG) setting the stage for talks between the two clubs.
PSG who had already agreed to a five year agreement with the Frenchman’s agents will send a formal email to Barcelona to close the deal.
“Ousmane Dembélé says yes to Paris Saint-Germain! Initial green light to the proposal has arrived. PSG verbally agreed five year deal with Dembélé’s agent. PSG have sent formal letter to inform Barcelona, now trying best way to close the deal — depends on timing,” said Fabrizio Romano

Dembele’s contract with the Catalans revealed that he could leave for €50 million before 31st July and €100 million afterwards.
Xavi is now expected to go for João Cancelo as top priority and Iván Fresneda as the second option.
“In case Ousmane Dembélé leaves Barça and accepts Paris Saint-Germain move, part of the budget could be used for the new right back with João Cancelo as top priority,” Said Fabrizio Romano.
