Ousmane Dembele has responded to Barcelona’s decision to sell him off at the end of the season following his decision to stall on signing a new contract.

Morning to everyone, it’s been four years since j stopped reading things about myself without ever trying to justify me. Gossip about me has been piling up for four years. For four years people have spoken for me, shamefully lied with a single purpose, the intention to harm me. I have been following my line of never answering for four years, justifying myself. Has it been a mistake? Surely as of today, it is over. Starting today, I will answer honestly without giving in to any kind of blackmail. I am 24 years old and like every other man, I have flaws, imperfections. I have lived through complex moments, injuries. Covid has affected me. Without the slightest training session, the mister has always requested me and I have always compiled without grumbling, I have performed as well as I have always done because I have always done because it is my passion. I am fully aware of my luck to dedicate myself to the most beautiful job in the world. Also my messages is transparent. I forbid anyone to speak in my place, in my agent in whom I have total confidence. I am still under contract, I am fully concerned and I am at the disposal of my club and my coach. I have always given my all to my teammates as well for all the supporters and it is not now that this wil end and this will not stop now. I am not a man who cheats and even less a man who gives into blackmail. As you know there are negotiations and I will leave that to my agent, it is his turf. My field is football, playing football, sharing moments of joy with my teammates with our supporters. Above all let us focus on the essential which is to win. Take care kf yourself and your loved ones. Ousmane Dembele.
