Some good news for Ousmane Dembele fans, Barcelona have ruled out an exit for the Frenchmen in January. There have been rumors that Dembele was a possibility to leave the club due to lack of playing time.

Ernesto Valverde hasn’t played the winger nearly as much as some, including myself, believe he should be playing. Despite scoring five goals in only nine appearances he just hasn’t caught the eye of Valverde consistently.

Signing Dembele for €105m just last year makes it tough to justify selling him this early on. Diario Sport is reporting that he’ll be staying at least past the winter transfer window.

Because of the amount of money Barcelona paid for Dembele it seems the realism of selling him and making their money back just isn’t in the cards yet.
