Barcelona Reach €150m With Dortmund Deal For Dembele
Barcelona has reached an agreement to sign Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund, according to reports in Spain.
The 20-year-old Frenchman will cost the Spanish giants around €150m, which would make him the second most expensive footballer ever, after the €222m Neymar, who incidentally was sold by Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.
Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that Barcelona officials confirmed they have reached an agreement in principle to sign Dembele from Borussia Dortmund after the player was suspended by the German club when he missed training while agitating for a move.
The deal is said to be worth an initial €120m with up to €30m in add-ons.
Dembele is expected to be unveiled over the weekend.
