According to Mundo Deportivo, PSG would keep a close eye on Ousmane Dembélé. But the hypothesis of a future arrival would be plausible only in the event of a reversal of the situation in the file of the extension of Neymar.
The Catalan press still maintains the idea that Neymar could finally do an about-face concerning his contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain, however well advanced. In this spirit, Mundo Deportivo assumes Wednesday that the club of the capital would already have a fallback solution in case the Brazilian star finally decides not to renew his contract beyond 2022. Also according to the Spanish daily, this plan B could be Ousmane Dembélé.
Mundo Deportivo claim that the profile of the 23-year-old French striker would be appreciated by Paris Saint-Germain. To the point of not being closed to a possible exchange, always in the event that Neymar ended up giving his priority to Barça, which is however in great financial difficulty.

Barça thinks of extending Dembélé
With ten goals and four assists, Ousmane Dembélé is back in the foreground this season at FC Barcelona. He also saved his team on Monday, scoring the goal of the meager 1-0 victory against Real Valladolid in the 90th minute.
The good performances of the 2018 world champion would have also pushed the management of the newly elected Barça to open discussions for a contract extension. A decision which is also motivated by the economic situation, the Catalan club not being able to afford to risk a free departure of its player in 2022. Especially since this same player cost no less than 135 million euros during his recruitment in 2017.
