L'Equipe has revealed the details of Ousmane Dembele's new contract with Barcelona.

The French star received no signing bonus upon re-signing with the club, but the two sides did agree to have a release clause of €50 million valid next summer.

If that clause is activated, half the sum would go to Dembele as a way to defer payment without impacting the club's current finances.
