Barcelona reject Bayern Munich bid for Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona have rejected a €70m approach for forward Ousmane Dembele from Bayern Munich, according to a report in Diario Sport.

However, despite the Blaugrana rejecting the bid they are said to be open to selling the Frenchman this summer should they receive an offer in excess of €95m.

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.

Last week, El Mundo Deportivo reported how the Bavarian club will attempt to sign the Frenchman should their move for Leroy Sane of Manchester City not come to fruition.

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.
