Blaugrana have of recently just like other clubs suffered huge financial blows from the Corona pandemic break with fans yet to be allowed back to the stadia.
The Club’s financial state is now playing a significant role in Dembele’s contract extension as Barcelona disclose criteria for his extension.
Following reports, it’s believed Barcelona will only hand the Vernon born an extension if only he doesn’t ask for a pay rise.
Should Dembele not consider the current happenings at the club and demand for pay rise then it’s likely he would be a Man United front man in no long time with the Red Devils still in the background waiting for an opportunity to present an official bid.
Instead Barcelona could then offer him only a year extension deal so as not to lose him as a free agent when his contract expires by March 2021.
The Catalans also disclosed they would be willing to offer Dembele gradual pay rise and gradual release clause reduce if he sticks with the side.
