FC Barcelona have been working on the transfer of Ousmane Dembele even before selling Neymar - 'L'Equipe' report.
The departure of the Brazilian to Paris Saint-Germain encouraged the "Pride of Catalonia" to accelerate the negotiations and make a visit to the Borussia Dortmund activists. The 20-year-old Frenchman is currently a top priority for the Spanish club. Representatives of Barcelona have been taking official steps to bring Dembélé to Camp Nou for a few days. The directors of the "Blaugrana" want to hit hard and fast to make up for the Neymar's transfer.
Surroundings of Stade-Rennais trainee do not want to comment on media reports. Unofficially, "L'Equipe" learned that the player is very close to reaching the agreement with representatives of the Spanish club. Now the sport director of the "Pride of Catalonia", Robert Fernandez, will take another step and travel to the Ruhr area where he will negotiate with BVB.
Real Madrid are also striving for the winger, but in this match everything depends on the determination of Barcelona. Dembélé is determined to fill the gap that arose after Neymar left and for months he repeated that he would one day be at Camp Nou. His player card is worth at least one hundred million euros, which would make the Frenchman one of the three most expensive players in the world along with Neymar and Paul Pogba.
