The agent of France attacker Ousmane Dembele has insisted that his client will not be leaving Barcelona in this summer's transfer window.
Dembele has largely struggled for consistency since joining the Catalan giants from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, with a succession of injuries harming the 22-year-old.
The Frenchman has recently been ruled out for five weeks with another hamstring problem, and is said to have angered the Spanish champions by failing to turn up for a medical assessment on Saturday.
Dembele has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain as part of a swap for Neymar, but his agent has firmly denied that the wide player could be heading for an exit.
"I wanted to clarify firmly and definitively the situation of Ousmane Dembele," Moussa Sissoko told L'Equipe. "He has not planned on leaving FC Barcelona even for a moment. This is the course of action set for several months now and no element is or will be likely to make us deviate from it.
"Ousmane feels perfectly well within the club and he remains determined to impose himself in the long term. Despite the offers of several big European clubs, Ousmane is convinced he wants to be part of the biggest of them and that everything is set for him to flourish.
"Unfortunately, his injury has temporarily stopped him during his drive to have a great and beautiful season. But this will not affect his success and his will to return as soon as possible. He is Barcelona and he will stay 1000% with the will to honour the colours of the club!"
Dembele has scored 18 times and registered 17 assists in 66 appearances for Barca in all competitions, including 14 goals during the 2018-19 campaign.body check tags ::
