Xavi: ‘He has the talent, can be the best in the world in his position’

Xavi does not intend to put Ousmane Dembélé in the stands, should the Frenchman not extend his contract with FC Barcelona. His commitment ends after this season, but talks about a new contract have gone into a deadlock.
Xavi sees in Dembélé a very important player for this Barcelona. About the precise details of the conversations between the attacker and the club, he does not dare to let himself out. I think its not just an economic issue, says Xavi at the press conference for Saturdays game against Real Betis, recorded by Diario AS. I made it clear to him that he has talent and that he can be the best player in the world in his position.
The fact that Dembélé has not yet renewed his contract, Xavi doesnt matter. For me, hes a key player. The negotiations are none of my business. It depends on Ousmane and his surroundings, says the practice master, who does not intend to put Dembélé in the stands because of his expired contract. A player with a contract should play. Im not considering that option, not even from an image point of view.
