‘Dembele agrees Barca deal’
Fascinating reports are emerging about Barcelona’s pursuit of Ousmane Dembele claiming that the player has agreed to sign a five-year deal with the Spanish giants. This is despite no fee being agreed with Borussia Dortmund.
Sport report that Barcelona won’t meet BVB’s demands for €80 million (£70.5 million). However, they are prepared to part with €50 million (£44.1 million) plus another €20 million (£17.6 million) in add-ons.
The Mirror report that Dortmund are furious with Barca over the aggressive manner in which they’re pursuing and trying to unsettle Dembele. If they continue to annoy Dortmund then the Bundesliga giants will take legal action.
Under contract with Dortmund until 2021, Dembele won’t be sold unless Dortmund’s demands are met.
Dortmund’s sport director Michael Zorc said: “Ousmane Dembele has a long-term contract. There are no negotiations.
“Dembele will play for BVB in the coming season.
“If Dortmund is not contacted [by interested clubs], we could initiate a FIFA procedure.”
