Barcelona's Dembele offer rejected by Dortmund

Barcelona's Dembele offer rejected by Dortmund”

La Blaugrana are now chasing top transfer targets Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, but if the Catalan giants are rebuffed in their advances for the pair, they could opt to turn their attentions to Perisic instead.

The statement read: "Borussia Dortmund has held talks with the Catalan football club FC Barcelona regarding the possible transfer of the BVB player Ousmane Dembele to FC Barcelona". Having collected over €200M from the sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain, the Catalan's are awash with money and it's even been suggested that the Nerazzurri may even up the ante by raising the price even higher. Barcelona have already had a bid rejected, but are desperate to sign the Frenchman as a replacement for Neymar, whose transfer to PSG has been ratified by the FFF.

The 20-year-old missed training without permission on Thursday, with Dortmund head coach Peter Bosz telling a news conference the club had been unable to contact Dembele. Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is reportedly keen on scuppering Dembele's move, and has offered Dortmund a move that would involve a "cash+player" deal, so that the Schwarzgelben will not be left in the lurch so late in the transfer window.

"Barcelona has presented an offer that does not match the extraordinary footballing and otherwise status of the player and also not the current market situation".

Dembele scored 10 goals and supplied 21 assists in 49 games for Dortmund in his debut season with the club.
