The France international has penned a new two-year contract at the club.

Barcelona have confirmed that Ousmane Dembele has signed a new two-year contract until 2024.

The 25-year-old winger’s previous deal expired at the end of June. Talks continued between both parties, though. They agreed on a deal shortly afterward, bringing an end to negotiations that lasted months.

Dembele promptly arrived in Barcelona by the end of the weekend, completed his medical tests, and signed a fresh contract at Camp Nou.

How much money will Dembele earn?

Reports in Spain have suggested the World Cup winner has taken a big pay cut from his previous salary to re-join Barcelona.

According to French outlet Foot Mercato, Dembele will pocket a net salary of €11 million. His last contract at Barcelona, which he signed back in 2017, earned him a gross base salary of €12 million per year.

That said, there are significant incentives attached to the deal and Dembele will have an ‘advantageous release clause’ as well.

When will the contract expire?

Dembele’s new contract will run until June 2024, meaning Barcelona retain his services for at least another two seasons.

The former Borussia Dortmund ace will sign the contract in private on Thursday afternoon at 1:15 pm (CEST). Barca will officially present him at the Tito Vilanova pitch at 1:45 pm (CEST).

What is Dembele’s record at Barcelona?

 The French attacker has supplied 32 goals and 34 assists in 150 appearances across all competitions for the Blaugrana since his €140 million arrival from Borussia Dortmund in 2017. He has won five trophies in Catalonia, including back-to-back La Liga titles.

Last season, however, was arguably Dembele’s finest for the club. He recorded  a league-best of 13 assists in 21 La Liga games, despite beginning the campaign on an injury-hit note. His performances won over manager Xavi, who pushed hard to retain the player.
