Barcelona: There is no problem with Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona general manager Pep Segura has ruled out a potential sale of forward Ousmane Dembele: “There is no problem with him.”

The Frenchman has allegedly been in breach of disciplinary rules at the club while reports have suggested Liverpool and Arsenal have made bids, but Segura refuted these claims.

“There is no problem with Dembele, the situation is normal with a young player,” Segura told Cadena Ser, as cited by El Mundo Deportivo.

“He has a lot of talent and is trying to adapt to a very big club, where he has many great players to compete with and teammates who will try to help him.

“He never has gone through something like this before and he has to be patient for the adaption to happen, as does everyone.

“We all recognise the situation, including the player, and we are all working to ensure the adaptation is in the best possible way and as quickly as possible.

“I do not know where the English press get their information, but we have had no offers and we have no desire to change that situation.

“I have held meetings with Dembele’s agents, as with two other players, because that is my job and these are regular occurrences.”
