FC Barcelona and their French attacker Ousmane Dembélé have reached an agreement for a contract extension until June 30, 2024.
Dembélé was 20 years old when he joined Barça in the summer of 2017 from Borussia Dortmund, and made his debut on September 9 in a derby against Espanyol, contributing an assist to a 5-0 win. But despite his highly promising start, he never quite managed to get into his full stride due to an unfortunate string of different injuries.
In total the French winger has played 150 games in his five years at FC Barcelona. He has earned a fabulous reputation as an assist-provider, and in the 2021/22 season he topped not just Barça but also LaLiga by setting up 13 goals.
All in all, he has given 34 assists as a Blaugrana, while also scoring 32 goals of his own to help the team to two league and two cup titles.
Dembélé won another major trophy in his time as a Culer, the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, when he was just 21 years of age and featured in four of France’s games under Didier Deschamps.
