Barcelona president Joan Laporta has affirmed that if there has been any change in Ousmane Dembele’s future plans it would be news to him. with Chelsea still looking at a possible transfer deal.

The France forward, 24, has failed to agree a new contract at the Nou Camp, with his current deal set to expire this summer, and that has led to alot of speculation that he could come to the Premier League

Chelsea are very much interested in getting some kind of transfer deal done, especially after the Spanish club told him he could leave the club this transfer window after failing to agree that new contract.

The rumours that the club are keen to wrap up a deal have dyed down in recent weeks, for obvious reasons guys, but there is a feeling that the new owners will want to make a few impact signings, and Dembele could be a man that they make a move for.

But amid the speculation, now amid all the rumours, Laporte has opened up and handed chasing clubs an update on a possible transfer deal:”At the present time, on our part, we have not heard that [Dembele] wants to stay on,” Laporta signalled to Mundo Deportivo

“I don’t know if his agent has been in touch but I don’t think so, because I would know, and we are focused first and foremost on this final stage of La Liga to try and win it.

“At the end of the season I suppose there may be some sort of talks but inside the salary limits we are setting.”

“I do not like to talk about hypotheticals,” he added.

“[If Dembele decides to open talks] we are open people and we like Dembele a lot, I have said it from the start and I have often made it very clear how much we appreciate him.

“Also, now he is getting on really well with Aubameyang and [Samuel] Umtiti, there is a good atmosphere and he looks happy after every game. He gets on great with Auba and that is fantastic.”
