Xavi hoping Ousmane Dembélé will stay at Barcelona

Barcelona head coach Xavi has made it clear that French winger Ousmane Dembélé is in his plans at Camp Nou.

“I had an individual chat with him,” Xavi told the media on Friday.

“I made it clear to him how important he was for not only me this season, but for the future. It depends on him. Hopefully, he can renew because he’s a player capable of making a difference in the next few years.”

Dembélé has made only two Champions League appearances this season due to injury but is in the squad for Saturday’s La Liga match away to Villarreal.
