There has been some speculation that Ousmane Dembele might be looking to leave the Blaugrana if they re-sign Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Contrary to some rumors, the arrival of Neymar to Barcelona won’t prompt Ousmane Dembele to leave the club.

At least accordingly to his agent Moussa Sissoko.

“He doesn’t feel at all threatened,” he commented to Goal.

“When you play at Barca, you expect to be in competition there.”

“Neymar or another, he does not care about that, he only cares about what he has to do,” he added.

“We received shows of interest from big clubs. But we were clear on the fact that he did not want to leave.”

Sissoko continued saying: “I told them from the start that he wants to succeed in Barcelona. The door is closed, and Paris or any other club are aware of our intentions.”

“Will he be at Barca this season? In our plans, he wants to stay and all his work is towards that. We are working on that.”
