OUSMANE Dembelé may have been linked to a move away from Barcelona, but the footballer does not seem keen on leaving the club right now.
The French winger has been named as a possible addition to Bayern München’s roster in the past few weeks, but the player’s inner circle has dismissed the idea despite Die Roten’s interest in having him around.
Speaking to Sky Germany, a source close to Dembelé practically ruled out the player’s return to the Bundesliga, following his stint at Borussia Dortmund before being signed by Los Blaugranas.
“The chances that Ousmane will play at Bayern next season are almost zero. He is and will remain at Barcelona,” the source claimed.
Replacing Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery seems to be giving Bayern’s hierarchy a headache, mainly because their top targets -Dembelé and Manchester City’s Leroy Sané- don’t seem keen on joining the German champions.
With the summer transfer window in full motion, if Barcelona ends up signing both Antoine Griezmann and Neymar, Ousmane Dembelé may change his mind about a possible transfer, since he would definitely fall down the pecking order with Messi, Suárez and the aforementioned players at Valverde’s disposal.
