Dembele could 'take Barcelona to court'

French midfielder Ousmane Dembele could have right to compensation





Barcelona could face a costly court battle with reports suggesting that their French forward Ousmane Dembele could take legal action against the club due to their attempts to force him out.


Article 50 of the Workers’ Statute gives workers the right to request the termination of an employment relationship in cases where there has been a serious and culpable breach by the employer.


This also provides the right to compensation related to unfair dismissal and unemployment benefit.


Marca reports that Barcelona’s treatment of Dembele could “cost the club dearly”.


Dembele has in the past been advised by lawyer Horst Kletke.
