    Ousmane Dembélé

    Masour Ousmane Dembélé, a French professional football player who competes for both the France national team and La Liga club Barcelona, was born on May 15, 1997. He plays as a winger.

    Before beginning his career with Borussia Dortmund in 2016, Dembélé spent time at Rennes. With Dortmund, he won the DFB-Pokal in 2016–17, scoring a goal in the championship game.

    A year later, he joined fellow countryman Paul Pogba as the joint-second most expensive player in history when he moved to Barcelona for an initial fee of €105 million.

    Dembélé went on to win the La Liga and Copa del Rey double in his debut season in Spain, which was marred by injuries.

    Dembélé made his senior international debut for France in 2016 after amassing 20 caps and five goals at the youth level.

    On September 9 against Espanyol in the league, he made his Barça debut and marked the occasion by assisting.

    In that year’s Champions League match against Chelsea, he scored his first goal as a blaugrana.

    Dembélé distinguished himself as La Liga’s leading assist provider in the 2021–2022 season.

    The Frenchman enjoyed a fantastic season after earning Xavi Hernández’s trust, forging a fantastic relationship with Aubameyang.


    The winger contributed 13 assists, and when his contract came to an end in the summer of 2022, Dembélé decided to stay with the blaugranes until June 2024.
