And that could provide a boost Chelseawho may be looking for the free agent.

Dembele24, signed for Barca in 2017 for a whopping £97m.

But his five-year deal expires this summer and the breakdown between the two parties means nothing has been resolved.

The reason was to try to resolve the differences and repair any damage done after a “complicated” January.

Dembele has been heavily linked with a transfer exit – and it was believed many Premier League clubs were keen.

However, nothing materialized and he stayed at the Nou Camp – alongside buddy Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – to see the rest of his deal after initially being frozen.

Negotiations about a contract extension and a new salary should be pending in the next few weeks.

But the parties must act quickly as the end of the season is fast approaching.

Asked if Dembele would sign a new contract BarcelonaClub president Joan Laporta said simply: “Hopefully.”

Last month, Laporta insisted the French winger had to do it lower his demands in order to get a contract.

Chelsea are said to be at the front of the queue plunging and landing Dembele on a free transfer shouldn’t settle anything.

However, Arsenal, Manchester United and PSG could also be in contention.

Dembele has scored 32 goals in 141 Barcelona games since that mega-money swap from Borussia Dortmund.
