Ousmane Dembele made his move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), taking advantage of the €50 million ($54 million) release clause that allowed the former Rennes forward to join the club.
In a statement released by PSG, Dembele expressed his excitement about his new journey with the team. He said, “I’m delighted to be a part of Paris Saint-Germain and eagerly anticipate wearing the team’s colors. I aim to continue my growth here and bring pride to all those who hold the club dear.”
Having accrued 37 caps for France, along with four goals, Dembele now joins the ranks of other World Cup champions at PSG, including Kylian Mbappé, Presnel Kimpembe, and Lucas Hernandez.
During his time with Barcelona, Dembele encountered early difficulties adapting to the Catalan side and suffered from injuries. Nevertheless, he managed to score a total of 40 goals across 185 matches. He achieved significant success with the team, clinching three league titles in 2018, 2019, and 2023, along with two Spanish Cups in 2018 and 2021.
PSG is reinforcing their attacking lineup, especially considering the uncertainty surrounding the futures of stars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi praised Dembele’s passion and determination upon joining the club, emphasizing that these qualities are essential for all their players. He expressed pride in having another French World Cup winner join PSG, heralding a new era for the club.
