Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele (26) wears a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) uniform. After passing the medical test, he reviewed his contract and finalized the transfer work by signing it. An official announcement is expected within 24 hours.
French media outlets such as ‘RMC Sport’, ‘Requipe’ and ‘Le Parisien’ said on the 12th (Korean time), “Dembele finally became a PSG player.” signed,” said the news in unison.
According to reports, Dembele has signed a five-year long-term contract with PSG until 2028. An annual salary was agreed on the condition of receiving more than 21 million euros (approximately 30.6 billion won). When he transferred, the transfer fee he was given to Barcelona was 50 million euros (approximately 72.9 billion won), which is the transfer allowance (buyout) clause.
Dembele is expected to greet PSG fans in the 2023-2024 season French Ligue 1 round 1 home opener against FC Lorient to be held at Prac des Princes in Paris, France on the 13th. Prospects came one after another that the transfer official would come out before then.
Dembele was suddenly connected to PSG from the middle of last month. However, it seemed that he would not leave this summer despite ‘Love Call’. This was because he was satisfied with his life at Barcelona and planned to stay by signing a new contract. It was in the same context that Al Nasr’s mega offer was previously proposed.
However, in PSG’s active courtship, Dembele finally changed his mind. In particular, he was informed about the project directly by coach Luis Enrique (53), and decided to transfer with guaranteed playing time as he was recruited as a resource to replace Neymar (31) and Kylian Mbafe (24), who are likely to leave.

When Dembele joined PSG, he returned to the French Ligue 1 stage after about seven years. He is expected to team up with Lee Kang-in (22), Marco Asensio (27), and Gonzalo Hamus (22) in the attacking area in the new season. He has a high chance of becoming a practical ‘ace’.
Dembele made his professional debut at Stade Rennes in 2015 before joining Barcelona in 2017 via Borussia Dortmund. At the time, the transfer fee, including options, exceeded 135 million euros (approximately 196.8 billion won). As such, his skills were outstanding, and he was evaluated as a promising player with abundant potential.
However, suffering from injuries such as hamstrings, ankles, tendons, and muscles every season, he fell into a ‘glass body’ and did not live up to his expectations at all. In addition to his injuries, he also caused controversy due to his refusal to train, being late, and issues with his personal life. As a result, he even wrote the stigma of ‘eating and running’.
Dembele, however, has been playing well since November 2021, when coach Xabi Hernandez (43) took office midway. In fact, in the past two years, he showed off his former heyday force while managing himself well, with few injuries, and planting a strong impact every time he appeared.
