FC Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has made a final decision on Ousmane Dembele, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
Dembele was heavily linked with Chelsea on the final day of the transfer window on Monday, but ultimately opted to stay at the Camp Nou.
Barcelona had told the French attacker he was free to leave in the January transfer window after failing to agree terms on a new deal.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding his at the Camp Nou, Xavi insists he will use the player after including him in the squad to face Atletico Madrid.
“The circumstances have meant we have not found a solution. Now he is part of the club, of the squad and he has a contract," Xavi said, as per Football Espana.
“We have met with all parties and we have decided that he is a part. He can help and has been a great professional. It’s a decision of the club.
“We will use him when I think it is convenient. He is one of the team.”
