Ousmane Dembele verbally agrees five-year PSG contract

Paris Saint-Germain have sorted personal terms with Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, whose €50 million release clause expires on August 1.

Dembele has been linked with a PSG move for months, and the Parisians moved to activate his €50m release clause earlier this week. And the transfer now seems close to completion, with Dembele giving the go-ahead to the deal, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Dembele has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for €50m if it is triggered by midnight on Monday, the end of July, after which the clause doubles to €100m. PSG could finalise the signing of Dembele by paying his release clause, and that is an option now personal terms are agreed.

An agreement over a five-year deal has been reached between Dembele and PSG, who have informed Barcelona of the situation.

The two clubs have held talks and how they develop in the coming hours will determine whether PSG will need to pay the release clause or come to agreement with Barcelona.

As a result, PSG have only got until the end of Monday to activate Dembele’s €50m release clause, after which they would need to pay double in order to sign him.

Xavi Hernandez is confident of retaining Dembele’s services, although he did admit that he cannot absolutely guarantee that the French international will stay.

Barcelona are hoping to agree a new contract with Dembele over the next few weeks, although they will be relying on him rejecting PSG’s advances if the French champions do activate his release clause.

PSG have made their move for Dembele at the same time as they battle with Kylian Mbappe over his future, but the club insist that their interest in the Barcelona star is not directly related.
