Barcelona agree £90m initial fee for Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona agree £90m initial fee for Ousmane Dembele

The La Liga giants remain determined to sign Dembele before the summer transfer window closes on 31 August to help fill the void left by Neymar's record-breaking transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

Dembele is now suspended by the club after missing training following his club meeting with Barcelona and Watzke is refusing to call it a coincidence.

"We told him we'd allow him [to leave], but not after only a year".

Liverpool's owners, meanwhile, released a statement on Friday insisting they will not consider any offers for Coutinho, an announcement that was swiftly followed by reports the Brazil worldwide had submitted a transfer request. Either Barcelona pay the sum we ask for.

Dortmund appear open to letting Dembele leave after an initial hard stance over the player - as reported by Sport, the club have said they will sell under one condition; that condition was not specified but is presumably that Barca stump up the right money.

"We met with Barcelona officials on the Wednesday and our ideas were poles apart".

"We have a clear position, if it is fulfilled, [he] will be transferred this summer", Zorc said ahead of Dortmund's first Bundesliga fixture of the campaign on Saturday. Then, on Thursday, he did not show up at the training.

The news also has implications on Liverpool, who are also battling to keep hold of their most prized asset, Philippe Coutinho.

Barcelona have agreed an up-front fee of £90million with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of Ousmane Dembele, according to reports in Spain. "You don't believe a 20-year-old will refuse to go to training without his possible new club liking that?"
