According to various sources, Barcelona are focused on multiple contract renewals while club football is at a standstill in lieu of the World Cup, and one of the players who is likely to be renewed is Ousmane Dembele.

Having arrived at Barcelona long before, he couldn’t find much prominence as he was plagued with recurring injury issues which kept him out of action for the majority of his early days. However, Xavi’s arrival has worked wonders as the Frenchman turned the tides around.

He is a key figure in Xavi’s system, which reiterates the importance of generating space using wide wingers, and Ousmane Dembele excels in this aspect. Rather a pacy player, he excels at dribbling and take-ons and is also lethal on the break. His finishing has also improved which helped Ousmane put the ball in the back of the net a few times this season.

He has also managed to maintain his regular fitness level by taking the help of personal trainers, and he also praised Xavi as to how he has shown faith in him, which he certainly looks grateful for.

The star Frenchman has played 873 minutes this season in La Liga, Gathering 4 Goals and 5 Assists. He has outperformed his xG by a margin of 1.57 and he has also created 31 chances in total and has a 52% shots on-target rate.

His performance has not gone unrewarded, as the explosive forward now will be proposed an extension till 2026. Talks with his agents are likely to begin soon, and it’s expected for him to renew as he looks satisfied here now that Xavi has helped him rediscover himself.
