Dortmund star admits Barca ‘dream’

Ousmane Dembele has admits his ambition is ‘to play for Barcelona one day’ but he insisted he is happy at current club Borussia Dortmund.

The 20-year-old rising star, who hit the winner for France in Tuesday’s victory over England, also spoke of meeting the Catalan club last season before eventually joining the German side from Rennes.

Speculation in El Mundo Deportivo and Diario Sport have suggested a deal could be possible this summer, but the player has now appeared to play down the possibility of one.

“Last year, I had contact with the Barcelona sporting director [Robert Fernandez] and my dream is to one day play for them,” Dembele told BeIn Sports.

“But I’m feeling good in Dortmund. I have a contract until 2021, and I’m not paying attention to what is being said.”
