LaLiga: Ousmane Dembele’s release clause at Barcelona revealed


The details of Ousmane Dembele’s new contract at Barcelona has been revealed by L’Equipe.

Dembele did not get any signing bonus after re-signing with the LaLiga club.

But the two sides did agree to have a release clause of €50million valid next summer.

If that clause is activated, half the sum would go to Dembele as a way to defer payment without impacting the club’s current finances.

Dembele has also admitted he wasted five years of his life as he dealt with countless injury setbacks.

In an interview with RMC, Dembele opened up on his struggles to maintain fitness.

“From 2017 to 2021 I wasted my time enormously.

“I have lost five years of my life. I had to work to be able to play, to be healthy and to be able to perform little by little.

“I’ve had a lot of hamstring injuries. The trainers insisted to me that if I didn’t work more, I was going to relapse. With Koeman I started to improve and with Xavi it has gone better.

“When I came to Barca I was younger, of course I went out, but not as much as people say or as people imagine,” Dembele said.

Dembele joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund for a €105million fee in 2017.
