PSG to activate Ousmane Dembele’s €400million Barcelona release clause

Barcelona thought they were safe by including a €400million release clause in Ousmane Dembele's contract. They were wrong

PSG have announced their intention to meet Ousmane Dembele’s Barcelona release clause of €400million, just a day after the Frenchman signed from Borussia Dortmund.

Despite having already raided Barcelona for Neymar this summer, it seems PSG are not done flexing their financial muscle.

When asked where the money was coming from PSG simply said ‘je ne sais quoi‘ before encouraging people to go on 2-for-1 package holidays to Qatar.

PSG’s unofficial head of transfers, Lee Satchell said: “PSG are well aware that they have absolutely no need for Dembele in their squad.

“Neymar could play with his boots on the wrong feet and still be the best player in the league.

“But this isn’t really about strengthening the squad.

“It’s all about showing Barcelona who’s boss. You see, the other day Barcelona rang up PSG and said they wanted to sign Angel Di Maria.

“PSG threatened to sign Dembele and Barcelona pretended they had the wrong number and hung up.

“Now it looks like they are going through with that threat.

“Dembele was more than happy at Barcelona, but PSG said something about €500,000-a-week and now he’s well on board.

“Barcelona have tried blocking them on Facebook, deleting them on Snapchat and unfollowing them on Instagram, but PSG keep finding ways of getting bids in.

“Apparently they sent this one to Spain via a meme.”
