Despite Ousmane Dembele being seen as having one foot already out of the exit door, the Frenchman’s proposed move to PSG is currently on standby.

The Frenchman had flown to Paris to complete the transfer, but Barcelona have yet to send all the documents for the transfer to transpire, and thus he is back training with the Catalans.

Dembele potentially set to face the fans’ outrage

The PSG technical department is still awaiting the required paperwork that will enable them to start the process and make the World Cup winner officially a Parisian.

In light of the move being delayed by administrative factors, SPORT has come out to report that there are currently doubts about Barcelona calling up the player for the Joan Gamper Trophy clash.

The game is set to be played against Tottenham Hotspur at the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium tomorrow.

While Xavi will have the final say over the squad list, there is a possibility that Dembele is called up to face the fans, who are bound to showcase their disdain against the Frenchman’s decision to jump ship.

The main question is whether Xavi will include Dembele and make him face the heat or whether he will exclude him from the last game before Barcelona commence their league season against Getafe.

The club can elect to expose the player as he goes through the ritual of taking part in the presentation and is inevitably subjected to the public’s wrath, or they can allow the 26-year-old to save face. For now, both possibilities are being considered.

The ball lies in Barcelona’s court as Dembele stares into the face of an uncertain future.

Although only the final details are left to be drawn up, Dembele is currently contractually obligated to Barcelona and cannot refuse the club’s request if they decide to call him up for the encounter.
