Barcelona are reportedly already considering offloading summer signing Ousmane Dembele after his injury nightmare at the Nou Camp continued.
According to BBC Sport, Dembele faces a month out with a hamstring injury, despite only recently making his return from another lengthy injury layoff. The France international became one of the most expensive players in history when he moved from Borussia Dortmund to Barca in the summer for what BBC Sport reported at the time as a £135.5million fee.
One of the most exciting young players in the world, Dembele shone at Dortmund but has just not had the rub of the green since his move to La Liga and it could cost him. According to Don Balon, Barcelona is keen to bring in Antoine Griezmann up front and could consider using Dembele as a makeweight in any potential deal.
That would be a huge blow to the talented 20-year-old, who looked to have the world at his feet after shining in the Bundesliga. It would also be a dent to Manchester United’s transfer plans, with The Sun linking Griezmann as a target for Jose Mourinho earlier this season.
