Ousmane Dembele has finally agreed a new contract with Barcelona until 2024 after his previous deal expired on June 30, the Catalan club confirmed on Thursday.
Dembele extended his five-year stay at Camp Nou by signing a two-year contract, bringing to an end months of uncertainty surrounding his future.
Barca told him to find a new club in January after failing to strike an agreement over a renewal. They even left him out of the squad for two matches and threatened that he would be banished to the stands for the rest of the season if he stayed without signing a new contract.
However, coach Xavi Hernandez, who has always maintained he wanted the French winger to stay, brought him back into the side in February despite opposition from within the club.
