Is Dembele ready to fill Neymar shoes?
Barcelona finally gets their man. Dembele has skipped training in Dortmund resulting being suspended by the club after knowing the German club has rejected a bid from Barcelona.
He went on strike and did not attend any training at all to force through the move. Dortmund, like Liverpool are adamant they would not sell Dembele and Coutinho.
But every player has a price.
The young French winger, aged 20 completed his medical yesterday and presented in Camp Nou in a deal worth £96 million that could reach up to around £136 million.
Maybe because he is young, when he was presented in front of 17,000 fans, he kinda fluffed his line while trying to do fancy flick up kicks.
At least better than Paulinho though. Hope Dembele will not be nervous when he make his debut.
“I am very happy to be here. I feel no pressure and I will do my best for the team” he said.
He also added that he is looking forward to be playing with Lionel Messi describing the Argentinian as the best football player in the history.
The winger will be wearing No.11, previously by Neymar and will make his debut on September 9 after the international break.
