Barcelona to sell Ousmane Dembele to raise Neymar funds

Barcelona are willing to listen to offers for Ousmane Dembele in order to raise funds for signing Neymar, report El Mundo Deportivo.

The 22-year old has endured two campaigns blighted by injury at the Camp Nou and it has been reported that there is growing frustration over his continued fitness issues.

The Catalan-based daily now reports how Bayern Munich will attempt to sign the Frenchman should their move for Leroy Sane of Manchester City not come to fruition.

It is said that the club president held a meeting with the player’s agent earlier this month in which it was made categorically clear that the club ‘was counting on Ousmane’ for future years.

The France international netted 14 goals this season but had been restricted to just 20 starts in La Liga and failed to sustain a run of games without further injuries.

It is said that Barca need to sell first-team squad players in order to fund further reinforcements and Dembele’s future had been question in light of the club’s interest in re-signing Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.

It has been claimed that both Dembele and Philippe Coutinho could be sold by the Catalan giants this summer in order to finance a return for the Brazilian star.
