Barcelona's board are reportedly divided on the approach that should be taken to Ousmane Dembele's situation at the club, with the attacker now officially a free agent.
Dembele's contract at Camp Nou expired on June 30, with the France international refusing to sign the fresh deal that had been placed on the table by the Catalan giants.
Jacobs claims that Dembele has still not officially rejected the Catalan outfit, but the club could decide to withdraw their offer if he does not make a decision soon.
Meanwhile, it is alleged that the board at Camp Nou are divided on the best approach, with a number of other clubs keeping a close eye on his situation.
Chelsea are allegedly also unprepared to meet the player's salary demands, meaning that he will have to drop his expectations in order to either stay at Barcelona or move to Stamford Bridge.
Dembele enjoyed a productive 2021-22 campaign for his Catalan side despite some injury problems, scoring twice and providing 13 assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.
Meanwhile, the attacker has scored 32 goals and registered 34 assists in 149 appearances for his current side since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund in August 2017.
"Ousmane Dembele's future remains open and we are not going to enter into endless speculation," Football Espana recently quoted his agent Moussa Sissoko as saying.
"We are and have always been very respectful of all the clubs and we will continue in the same way as long as the process continues. When the time is right to make a decision, Ousmane will consider what is the best option for the future."
Chelsea allegedly told the attacker's agent that they would revisit the situation once his contract had officially expired, but his wage demands remain an issue at this stage.
Dembele was initially told to leave Barcelona in January after refusing to sign a new deal, but he managed to work his way back into the side in the second half of the campaign and is still believed to have a strong relationship with the club's head coach Xavi despite the contract saga.
