Barcelona’s chase for Leeds United Raphinha and the hide and seek game with Ousmane Dembele is about to cost them their back-up option for the right-hand side of their attack.
Ousmane Dembélé’s contract with Barcelona expired yesterday and he is no longer a Barcelona player. Though the club has given him a chance to re-sign as a free agent.
Angel di Maria was considered a suitable replacement for the Frenchman. And would be a low-cost alternative for the position.
Family preference prompted the Argentinian to place Barcelona ahead of Juventus, but no offer was place by the Catalan club.
The 34-year-old is set to accept Juventus’ offer and be announced in the coming days, according to Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport.
Whichever way Barcelona plan to sort out the issues surrounding the position is left for them as fans are anxious to know the plans on ground.
