Ousmane Dembele agreed on a five-year contract at PSG.
Former Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele has offered a key reason why he decided to leave Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain.
The 26-year-old made a departure from Barcelona in the summer. The Catalan giants tried hard to convince him to stay with the La Liga champions.
The Frenchman winger agreed on a five-year contract at PSG after the Ligue 1 Champions activated his €50m release clause within the negotiations.
Dembele issued a positive message of thanks following his departure from Camp Nou but he admitted the prospect of being a part of PSG’s future plans convinced him to move on.
As per an interview with Telefoot, via Marca, “I spoke with the coach and president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and they told me about the project. Playing in France again made me excited too.”
Dembele’s departure from the Catalan giants has been eased by the rapid rise of Lamine Yamal in recent weeks as the teenager continues to break records for club and country.
