Ousmane Dembele has reportedly made a decision on his future with his contract down to its final weeks at Barcelona with both Chelsea and PSG linked to the 25-year-old.
According to The Sun in, Dembele is ready to join Chelsea and reunite with his former coach Thomas Tuchel but refuses to watch on from the bench.
It is claimed Dembele in negotiations with Chelsea and Tuchel wants assurances that he will be a regular starter next season and not subject to the strict squad rotation that the German has stuck too since becoming the Blues boss in January of 2021.
Although Dembele only completed 90 minutes nine times in 2021/22, he racked up 13 assists for Barcelona which was the most in La Liga and topped Expected Assists rankings across Europe’s top five leagues.
Dembele has been linked to Chelsea since January when it appeared Barcelona were ready to sell him after a falling out with the club’s hierarchy.
Chelsea have also been linked with Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling who is claimed to be a top target, whilst the exit of Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan has taken much of the focus over the past two weeks.
