Barcelona Transfer – Dembele joining PSG, Cancelo agreed terms

Barcelona will soon announce the departure of Ousmane Dembele, who will join Paris Saint-Germain, while Xavi’s side is close to seal top full-back Joao Cancelo.


Confirmed La Liga 2023/24 Kits

In case you miss it, here is the first patch of La Liga new and confirmed kits for the new season of 2023/24.

The La Liga 2022/23 champions have been busy during the Summer transfer window, with many arrivals on the way, and the off-loading project will continue.

Dembele set to leave Barcelona

According to Fabrizio Romano, Dembele to PSG is a ‘Here we go’ done deal.

The Italia transfer guru claimed that French giants PSG had activated the ‘Private’ clause on Monday to seal Dembele for a humble transfer fee of €50m.

Dembele is leaving for PSG

The following steps will be medical tests and an official contract signing set to take place this weekend, which will see the forward featuring for PSG until June 2028.

Earlier, the Blaugrana manager Xavi made it clear that the 26-year-old forced the move, which hurt the club.

“Ousmane Dembélé told us that he wants to leave and join PSG. We can’t compete, PSG’s bid is huge and out of the market — he spoke to Luis Enrique and Al Khelaifi”, Xavi said in the latest interview when he was questioned about Dembele’s future.

“It hurts me because we cared for him to make him happy here. But we can’t compete, he’s leaving”.

The shocking move repeats what happened in 2017 when Neymar left Barca for PSG after the Brazilian’s release clause was triggered. Six years later, Dembele is going on the same path to PSG, also by activating his release clause.


Cancelo to Camp Nou is imminent

Conversely, Barca will soon have one of their most-wanted signings, as Man City out-cast superstar Joao Cancelo will move to Camp Nou.

The versatile full-back has agreed personal terms with Barca; he wants the move, and Xavi has wanted him since January as a priority target. Talks are now ongoing with Manchester City over the deal structure.

While it seriously damaged the relationship with Barca, Dembele is doing some favor since part of his budget (to PSG) will be used to sign Cancelo.

Since Jordi Alba left at the end of last season, the Catalan side have been desperate to bring in a quality full-back with equivalent attacking ability as their former captain.

Prestigious journalist Gerard Romero claimed that the deal is imminent, as Barca already have an agreement with Jorge Mendes for Cancelo. His salary would be around €6M.
