Mercato – Chelsea prefer Sterling to Dembélé, the reason is humiliating

Ousmane Dembélé still does not know what his future will be like. At the end of the contract with Barça, the world champion is courted by Chelsea.

Ousmane Dembélé’s career already seems to be at an important turning point. The French will indeed have to make a strong choice in the transfer window. At the end of the contract with Barça, Dembélé is spoiled for choice for the rest of his career. The Catalans want him to stay but not on the terms set by his agent Moussa Sissoko. In addition to Barca’s contract proposal, Dembélé is also being courted by PSG and Chelsea. Thomas Tuchel appreciates his profile and would keep working with Dembélé again, they who rubbed shoulders with Borussia Dortmund. And while the English press announced in recent days a rapprochement between Chelsea and Dembouz, the London club would have backtracked, favoring an upcoming signing of … Raheem Sterling.

Dembele not reliable enough for Chelsea?

According to information from Gianluca Di Marzio, Ousmane Dembélé is moving away from Chelsea. The reason to hurt the 25-year-old French player. Indeed, the Italian journalist indicates that the management of the Blues does not trust the physique of Ousmane Dembélé, too often injured in their eyes. Since 2017 and his arrival at Barça, Dembélé has accumulated a total of 14 periods of absence. Absences due to muscle injuries most of the time. The lifestyle of the former Rennais is often singled out and Chelsea therefore want to be able to put on a reliable player over time. According Athleticism, the 2021 European champions have their eye on Raheem Sterling. The English international, at the end of the contract in 2023 and not sure of having a huge playing time next season at Manchester City, may be tempted by a departure. The British media adds that the operation could be heard for an amount of 40 million euros. Well within the ropes of the Blues. If Chelsea withdraws for Dembélé, the Frenchman will have to decide between Barça and PSG. It also remains to be seen whether Luis Campos will bet on a player who is often absent, a great evil that has been eating away at the ranks of PSG for a few seasons already.
