28 Jul Sources: Dembélé set to join PSG from Barcelona
The French champions have been interested in the 26-year-old for a long time and according to sources, the forward has already agreed a five-year contract at PSG.
Dembélé has a €50 million ($55m) release clause that is valid until July 31 in his Barca contract before it goes up to €100m.
The France international also has an extension offer from Barca on the table but PSG are confident that the player is more attracted by their own project.
According to sources, there are still details to be sorted out but negotiations between the player’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, and Luis Campos, the PSG sporting director, are positive.
The forward has scored 40 goals in 185 appearances for Barcelona and won three LaLiga titles in Spain.
Sources have told ESPN that Real Madrid remain Mbappé’s preferred destination if he leaves this summer and expect progress on a potential deal to be made next month.
