Newcastle United are interested in signing Ousmane Dembele, who is’stalling’ over a new Barcelona deal.

Newcastle United is one of several clubs interested in signing Ousmane Dembele, who has yet to sign a new contract with Barcelona as his current deal expires.

In the wake of reports that Newcastle United are interested in signing Ousmane Dembele, the Frenchman is’stalling’ on re-signing with Barcelona.

Dembele’s contract with Barcelona is set to expire at the end of the season, and it was previously thought that he had decided to stay with the Spanish giants in December.

The arrival of Ferran Torres, on the other hand, is thought to have upset Dembele, who is now refusing to budge on his wage demands, which have been dubbed “crazy” by Barca officials.

As part of his new contract, the 24-year-old is said to have demanded a salary of just under £70 million per year.

Dembele and his advisers are taking their time deciding on his future, according to Foot Mercato, following renewed interest from Newcastle.

Barca has been pressuring Dembele to sign a new contract, but the player is said to be hesitant.

Dembele can sign a pre-contract agreement with another club now that he has reached the final six months of his contract, which expires in the summer.

Although talks have broken down, Dembele is said to have received an offer from an unnamed English club, which included a £17 million salary and a £25 million signing on fee.

Newcastle is also said to have made an initial offer before Dembele announced his intention to stay at Barcelona in December.

The player turned down the offer, which included a £240,000 weekly wage, but the Magpies are still interested in bringing the World Cup winner to St. James’ Park.

Dembele is also wanted by a number of top European clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich.

Barcelona had hoped to avoid losing Dembele for nothing this summer after signing him for a record-breaking £126 million in 2017, but may now have to accept that possibility.
