Barcelona have completed the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for a club record £96m.
The Spanish giants have trailed the youngster since Neymar left for PSG, and although Dortmund refused to sell initially, they have eventually parted with their highly rated sensation.
Dembele, 20, completed his Barcelona medicals on Monday, and has been handed the No. 11 jersey, vacated by Neymar, who joined PSG weeks ago under controversial circumstances.
Dembele’s signing makes it the second player to arrive the Camp Nou this summer, with midfielder Paulinho having arrived last week.
Speaking immediately after being unveiled, Dembele said: “I am very happy to be here. It has always been my dream to be at Barcelona,” he told the club’s website. He has signed a five-year contract.
