Dembele wants long stay at Barcelona

16 April 2018

Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele insists that he will be with the Catalan giants "for a long time" amid the speculation surrounding his future.

The French winger joined Barcelona last summer from Borussia Dortmund for €105 million ($130 million), but he failed to earn a starting position on the team.

The hugely talented winger joined Barcelona last summer for £97million but he saw his progress hampered by a hamstring injury and he has found it hard to command a regular place in the starting lineup since returning to full fitness. 'I signed a five-year contract with Barcelona. As reported by The Express, he said: "I'm not going to leave after just one season".

"I've worked very hard on my fitness the past few months, I have spent a lot of time in the gym because I am getting exhausted very quickly".

But Dembele is still planning to prove himself at Barcelona, dismissing any suggestions he could leave at season's end.

"I may not be at the top of my game now but I will continue to work hard and soon I will return to my best version". At Barcelona, I have a better lifestyle. I'm working on my cardio, because I get exhausted very quickly.

Dembele participated in Barcelona's 0-3 loss on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. I didn't have a healthy lifestyle in Germany and I didn't get injured.
