Barcelona have announced that they have re-signed Ousmane Dembele, on a two-year contract that will keep him at Camp Nou till to 2024.
According to goal.com, the player’s agent and the Catalan club found an agreement last week to make the winger extend his stay, and it has now been made official.
Dembele’s previous deal with Barcelona ended on June 30 and the World Cup winner was a free agent.
However, Xavi still sees the France international as an instrumental player and pleaded with the board to tie him down to fresh terms.
The forward has also agreed to a massive pay cut that has reportedly seen his salary reduced by 40 per cent.
However, variables have also been included based on his participation and performance in the upcoming two seasons. If he manages to tick all the boxes he will receive a salary of around €10 million-per-year.
