A supporter spotted FC Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele and asked him the obvious question about his future.
It seems almost certain Dembele will leave the club on a free transfer when his contract at the Camp Nou expires. However, the 25-year-old’s responses may raise a few eyebrows.
Dembele claimed that he’s staying at the Camp Nou. Moreover, when the fan asked him about the rumors of a move to Chelsea, he replied: “I’m fine in Barcelona.”

For a while now people are speculating that Dembele will leave for Chelsea and link up with his former coach Thomas Tuchel. The two worked together briefly at Borussia Dortmund before the forward moved to Barcelona.
President Joan Laporta claimed recently that Barcelona haven’t had a response to their latest contract offer to the Frenchman. There have also been rumors Barca have completely given up on the forward and have been planning for next season without him.
