Barcelona's contract problem with Dembele has become a significant headache. Because the Frenchman is in the final year of his current contract, he will be free to depart Camp Nou next summer.

Clubs from all around Europe are lining up to take advantage of this opportunity, with the Premier League showing particular interest. Liverpool and Manchester United have been connected often, while Newcastle United, a newly cash-rich club, has also entered the picture.

Santi Aouna of Footmercato has the latest on the Dembele drama, stating that the 24-year-old has received a big contract offer worth €20 million per year from an unknown Premier League team, along with a €30 million signing-on fee.

Dembele, on the other hand, is thought to prefer staying at Barcelona, despite the fact that he has yet to commit to a new contract with the club. According to the journalist, the Catalans will meet with the Frenchman's agent, Moussa Sissoko, next week to try to reach an agreement.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner was earlier believed to be dissatisfied with the pay paid by the Blaugrana. Dembele sees himself as a future Ballon d'Or winner, according to Aouna, and wants to be compensated accordingly.
