Borussia Dortmund reject Barcelona bid for Dembele

  • Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe

Dortmund manager Peter Bosz revealed earlier in the day that the 20-year-old French wonderkid had not turned up to training, and reports suggested he had travelled to Spain to complete a move to Barcelona.

"As there is no other offer on the table, a transfer by the player to FC Barcelona is not at this time expected nor now very likely", a club statement said.

While the total of the Blaugrana offer is as yet unknown, BVB recently warned the Liga giants that they wanted more than £100 million (€110m) for him.

Dembele appears keen to push a deal through, however, and although he was present for the team's official photo on Wednesday, manager Peter Bosz confirmed he skipped a training session on Thursday morning.

Barca have always been linked with a move for the 20-year-old winger, but have acted on their interest after selling Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million, with some reports stating Dembele has already agreed to the move.

Blaugrana officials Raul Sanllehi, Oscar Grau and Javier Bordas left Spain today to begin talks with Borussia Dortmund regarding a move for France global Dembele, as reported by Kicker and Mundo Deportivo. Because of that behaviour we will sanction him. The club also insisted that the player was now in Dortmund, contrary to other rumours.

"I'm not a phenomenon, I'm just trying to be decisive for my team-mates, there are a lot of talented young people in football", a modest Dembele said last March. I hope that nothing bad has happened.

A stunned Bosz explained: "Dembele was not at work today".

Dembele only joined Dortmund last summer, but enjoyed an excellent debut season in the Bundesliga.
