Barcelona bid rejected as Dortmund stand firm over Dembele

Barcelona bid rejected as Dortmund stand firm over Dembele

It was further suggested that the deal was just hours away from being concluded.

The Bundesliga outfit confirmed they have met Barca representatives but the offer for the 20-year-old did not meet their valuation of the France worldwide.

He said: "There was no sign yesterday that Ousmane Dembele would not be here today".

'We don't know where he is.

Barcelona is reported to have increased its bid for Coutinho to 90 million pounds (US$115 million) this week after two previous offers were rejected by the English Premier League side.

He told Mundo Deportivo: "Last year I had contact with the Barcelona sports director. He did not say anything about a transfer".

Ousmane Dembele had an average shot accuracy of 48% in the Bundesliga last season. "I hope nothing serious happened".

The yesteryear superstar Dilip Kumar had been admitted to the Lilavati hospital on April 15, 2016 after he suffered high fever. According to Indian media reports, Kumar received medication through an intravenous drip.

Capable of thriving whether deployed on either flank or as an attacking midfielder, Dembele is a very skillful player who would surely be very well suited to Barcelona's style of play. However, Dortmund have now sought to clarify the situation in a statement released via their official website.

Translation: "The appearance of Madrid strengthens the position of Borussia Dortmund when negotiating with Barça by Dembélé".

It began by statting that Dortmund "held talks with the Catalan football club FC Barcelona regarding the possible transfer of the BVB player Ousmane Dembele to FC Barcelona".

While the total of the Blaugrana offer is as yet unknown, BVB recently warned the Liga giants that they wanted more than £100 million (€110m) for him.

The statement also tells us that the offer "did not correspond to the player's extraordinary abilities".

Unimpressed, Dortmund promptly suspended the Frenchman for his unexplained absence.
