In this season’s La Liga, Barcelona can keep up with Real Madrid’s points gap, and it is inseparable from Dembele’s contribution. Now that Dembele has become more and more popular, the media has begun to worry that he will be poached by other teams.
Dembele ‘s release clause is only 50 million euros. Dembele can leave Barcelona as long as the team looks at him and is willing to activate the savings clause. This is because Dembele ignored Barcelona’s contract extension request in a past transfer window and wanted to go to another team. However, Dembele, who finally resumed his free agency status, has no team other than Barcelona wanting to sign.
During the negotiation between the two parties, Laporta and Dembele agreed that they would not give a signing fee, but would reduce the termination fee to meet the players’ desire to leave the team at any time. In addition, the annual salary in Dembele’s new contract has been weakened, and there are still “anti-injury regulations”, which means that if Dembele wants to get bonuses, the ratio of playing games to injuries and absences must be controlled within a certain threshold. Only then can.
Based on various considerations, Dembele signed a new contract in order to attract more teams to try to introduce himself by reducing the termination fee. This also reflects the mutual distrust between the club and the players.
The media generally believe that Chelsea is the most likely to activate the release clause of Dembele, because their striker has a big problem.
