Borussia Dortmund mock 'glorious' Barcelona over Ousmane Dembele chase

The first comes from the media source Four Four Two which comes up with the stunning news that the Borussia Dortmund sporting director, Michael Zorc, has remarked that the 20-year-old forward will only be sold if the price is right, well I never!

Dembele is now suspended from all Dortmund activities after going on strike to force a move to Barcelona, with the German club so far turning down all offers.

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

Speculation that a move to Barcelona was imminent soon mounted before BVB issued a statement saying a bid had been lodged by the Catalan giants but it did not meet their valuation for a player they signed from Rennes for EUR15m a year ago. Either Barcelona pay the sum we ask for. If our demand is fulfilled, he will be transferred this summer.

"We reported on Friday that Liverpool had rejected the third offer from Barcelona and an email was sent back [to Liverpool] from Barcelona saying, "okay, you rejected that - if you don't accept it I must tell you that there is a deadline of today, Sunday - 7pm".

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

Dembele has emerged as the favourite to replace Neymar on Barca's left wing, but they have yet to agree a deal with Dortmund, prompting the young Frenchman to skip training without permission.

Borussia Dortmund have provided an update on FC Barcelona target, Ousmane Dembele and claim he will only leave on one condition. Then, on Thursday, he did not show up at the training. "Do you believe that a 20-year-old does not attend training without the goodwill of the club trying to sign the player?" "Then it would definitely be possible".
