Barcelona have lost patience with Ousmane Dembele and want sale

Barcelona have run out of patience with forward Ousmane Dembele and will look to sell him this summer, according to Diario AS.

It is said that the club informed the Frenchman last year that his third season would define his future at the club and it points to the fact he has missed more first-team training days (344) than anyone else at the club since arriving in 2017.

Dembele’s alleged lack of discipline with his diet away from training, that is leading to him sustaining multiple injuries at the Camp Nou having never previously suffered them.

The France international – who has been plagued by injuries since moving to the Camp Nou in the summer of 2017 – pulled up in the 25th minute of the clash against his former club Borussia Dortmund in late November and has not featured since.

Tests had confirmed Dembele had sustained a muscle injury in his right thigh and the 22-year-old was set to be out for a minimum of two months, and despite returning to first-team training he suffered a fresh setback and will be out until August at the earliest.

Dembele has played only three full matches for the Spanish champions this season and also had to sit out earlier in the campaign due to a separate thigh injury.

It has been the forward’s worst season in terms of injuries at Barça – the player has played nine games out of a possible 37, 492 minutes out of 3,330 possible (14.77%).
