Xavi endorses Barcelona's pursuit of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona finalise deal for Paulinho

Barcelona finalise deal for Paulinho

Dembele believes he has a gentleman's agreement with Dortmund to join a club such as Barcelona but the German side deny such an agreement exists.

It must be noted that the Merseyside outfit have already rejected two bids from Barca for their no.10 and the club's owners as well as manager Jurgen Klopp have repeatedly stressed that the attacking midfielder is not for sale at any price.

Today, it appears that Borussia Dortmund have extended the ban.

Late last week, Dembele went AWOL with rumours rife that Barcelona had upped their bid for the French attacker.

Dortmund announced that no deal had been agreed and that they could not find the player.

And since I was a girl I have been admiring Sally Pearson . "This is just so incredible to be a world champion again". Pearson's problems started in 2015 when she broke her wrist in a race fall in Rome at the Diamond League event.

Once official, the announcement would come at a time when Barcelona fans are glued to their news feeds, awaiting the latest on potential Neymar replacements in Liverpool's Phillipe Coutinho or Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele.

"The decision was taken by Hans-Joachim Watzke, Michael Zorc and Peter Bosz following the first round cup win at 1.FC Rielasingen-Arlen on Saturday night".

Zorc says, "Our focus is now concentrated on preparing the team for the Bundesliga opening game this coming weekend in Wolfsburg", adding, "Dembele obviously has the possibility to train individually away from the group".

Apart from this, Borussia Dortmund will not comment any further on the facts.

Philippe Coutinho, Eden Hazard, Ousmane Dembele, Angel Di Maria, Paulo Dybala, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, all make up the list of a host of world class names linked with a move to the Catalan giants. "BVB have turned this offer down", Dortmund said.
