Barcelona Close To Signing Dembele

Barcelona are close to making Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele the second most expensive player in history in a deal worth up to 150m euros ($177m).

German side Dortmund rejected a bid from Barca for the France forward, 20, earlier in August, with the player then suspended for missing training.

Dembele’s fee will place him second behind the 222m euros (£200m) Paris St-German paid Barca for Neymar in August.

The £89m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba is second.

Last season, he scored 10 goals and provided 21 assists as Dortmund finished third in the league, won the German Cup and also reached the Champions League quarter-finals.
