Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele rejects €200m offer from Saudi Arabia

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has reportedly rejected a massive contract offer from the Saudi Pro League. 

Foot Mercato claim Al-Nassr were looking to sign him by triggering the €50 million release clause in his current deal at Camp Nou. 

They were also willing to pay the 26-year-old €40m per season over the course of a five-year contract.

But the winger has turned down the offer as he wants to stay in Spain.  

Dembele joined the Catalans for an initial €105 million fee in 2017, a year after signing for Borussia Dortmund for €35m. 

He has failed to live up to his enormous potential at Camp Nou due to a series of injury issues that have limited his availability. 

The talented winger has made 185 appearances in all competitions for Barca, making over 80 goal contributions.

His time with Barca looked to be coming to an end last summer after his contract expired at the end of June.

However, he subsequently agreed a two-year extension with the Spanish giants. 

The France international helped his side win the La Liga title and the Supercopa de Espana under manager Xavi Hernandez.

He made 35 appearances across all competitions last term, with 25 coming in the Spanish top flight. 

Barcelona have reportedly offered him a chance to extend his stay through to 2028, and he will likely take the opportunity.
