Dembele Staying Put

Ousmane Dembele was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks, and we were all pretty excited.

Unfortunately for us, Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu is an absolute killjoy, and he’s hammered home the final nail to the coffin of reports that suggested Jurgen Klopp could tie up a shock loan move for the French international.

Talking in America, Bartomeu said: “Coutinho, Dembele are for us a big investment. They are very important players and we expect a lot from them.

“Coutinho probably in the last four months has been very active for the team.

“But Dembele is a very young player, a very talented player that we are, of course, expecting a lot from. He’s been demonstrating during the season that he’s a good young player for us.

“But, of course, next season will be different. It’s not easy to play in Barcelona the first year because the model of football is quite different from the rest.

“But after one year I’m sure we are going to see Dembele and Coutinho at a very high level.”

That’s the end of that chapter, then.
