Borussia Dortmund mock 'glorious' Barcelona over Ousmane Dembele chase

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted Ousmane Dembele will move to Barcelona in the coming days if the Catalan club meet their valuation.

Barcelona have targeted Dembele, along with Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, as replacements for Neymar after the Brazil superstar left for Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

The French worldwide is now serving an internal suspension for missing training after Dortmund rejected an offer from the Catalans. That is a new quality...and we should also talk about the role of glorious FC Barcelona in this matter.

Borussia Dortmund boss Peter Bosz has "no idea" where Ousmane Dembele will be at the end of the transfer window.

"'On Wednesday [August 9] we met with Barcelona's officials".

Floods, landslides kill dozens across Nepal and India
Electricity supply has been hit in most parts of eastern Nepal and telecom services are down in numerous affected districts. A Kathmandu Post report said that public health experts have warned of water-borne epidemic in the flood-hit areas.


The news also has implications on Liverpool, who are also battling to keep hold of their most prized asset, Philippe Coutinho.

However, Barcelona won't likely give up on their pursuit as the recent Super Cup home and away losses to Real Madrid have further forced their hands. Then, on Thursday, he did not show up at the training.

"He'd need to apologise in front of the whole club", he said when asked if there was any way back for Dembele.

"We told him we'd allow him [to leave], but not after only a year".

The 20-year-old winger is one of Barca's top targets as they attempt to fill the void left by Neymar's £198m world-record transfer to PSG. "Do you believe that a 20-year-old does not attend training without the goodwill of the club trying to sign the player?" "Dembele and Coutinho are two important players that we like a lot and have done for a long time".
