Barcelona must sell Ousmane Dembele to land Neymar

Barcelona must sell Ousmane Dembele if they are to have any hope of re-signing forward Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.

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 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 claimed that PSG do not want Dembele as part of any swap deal as they already have players of similar characteristics while he is said to have a poor rapport with boss Thomas Tuchel, who coached him at Borussia Dortmund.

This is where Bayern Munich are said by Marca to come in, as they are interested in the Frenchman and would be willing to table a bid to raise significant funds at the Camp Nou.

The German champions saw a move for Manchester City forward Leroy Sane break down and they have now turned to Dembele.

It is said that Barca are running out of options to sell players who possess a requisite market value to allow them to re-sign Neymar, and Dembele is now the most obvious candidate for departure.
