News coming out of Spain suggests that LaLiga champions FC Barcelona are happy to listen to offers of €100 million (R1.54 billion) for one of their stars.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Spanish giants are willing to sell France international Ousmane Dembele in this window, but will only listen to clubs that are willing match their evaluation of the player.
The Blaugrana are apparently not convinced that Dembele fits into their system or future plans, which is why they are said to be happy with selling him just one year after they bought him from Borussia Dortmund for €105 million (R1.62 billion).
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the past couple of days, and various reports suggest that Arsenal and Manchester United are the two parties interested.
The Gunners are said to be the frontrunners for Dembele’s signature, and are believed to be looking to pick up the 21-year-old on a season-long loan before making any deal permanent.
The north London side is willing to offer Barcelona €10 million (R154 million) up front for the winger and then pay €90 million (R1.39 billion) at the start of next season which to finalise the deal, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The former Dortmund star, who is now a World Cup winner, has made 23 appearances for the Catalan club so far, scoring four goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
