When Paris Saint-Germain signed Ousmane Dembélé after activating his release clause, many assumed that he had begun working alongside Kylian Mbappé. However, seeing the best from the 26-year-old has been a slow process and there are some bumps in the road.
Additionally, there were questions about how Barcelona would replace the Frenchman, and Fichajes points out that the departure has helped the Spanish team consider the young player who has flourished.
“Although some were upset by his departure to Paris, Ousmane Dembélé’s farewell has been remarkably productive for FC Barcelona” Ficjahes wrote.
“The departure of the 26-year-old Frenchman has opened the door for Lamine Yamal, who has become one of the great sensations of this start of the season, and despite his youth, he is even a national team player. The culés are walking with a firm step and are second in the League after Real Madrid, also showing notable solidity and good play.”
PSG hopes that Dembélé can get out of this slump to begin his mandate in the French capital. Furthermore, he couldn’t arrive at a better time, considering that the Ligue 1 giants host Borussia Dortmund at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.
Perhaps playing against his old team and playing in the UEFA Champions League could motivate the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to have a spectacular game. Furthermore, it would also calm the criticism that Dembélé is facing after Friday’s 3-2 defeat against OGC Nice.
