Barcelona have ran out of patience with Ousmane Dembele, despite the World Cup winner’s jaw-dropping talent, and will try to get rid of him in January.
That’s according to a strong report by RAC1, also cited in Spanish outlet SPORT, who suggest Dembele’s internal discipline is causing unrest. He’s been late to meetings and training, unapologetic and is not displaying the kind of attitude manager Ernesto Valverde requires.
Dembele cost Barcelona over £100m in summer 2017, but has to yet to consistently fulfil his talent and the reports claim the Catalans are now looking at prospective buyers for the winter window…
As a result, Liverpool fans have begun to share the below video, which is a video of Jurgen Klopp discussing Dembele over the summer.
The German reacts to a question about the flyer, having previously tried to sign Dembele from Rennes in 2016 before Borussia Dortmund got to him.
“Oooh Is he on the market? Now I’m interested!” Klopp said!

Despite issues with Dembele’s maturity, we think Klopp could work wonders with him.
The levels of talent in terms of young attackers worldwide is perhaps only bettered by Kylian Mbappe…
The thought of Klopp deploying a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Ousmane Dembele behind Mo Salah is mouthwatering!
However, we only think it would be possible via a loan deal as the price Barca would demand would surely be unrealistic.
