Ousmane Dembele has rejected a chance to leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain, according to Sport.
The situation surrounding the future of Neymar has sparked many stories this summer, with latest reports claiming the Brazilian is prepared to look elsewhere if Barcelona aren’t decisive enough, though a return to the Camp Nou would still be his preferred choice.
The biggest problem that stands in the way of that happening is apparently PSG’s valuation of the player. The Ligue 1 champions paid a world-record fee of €222 million to sign Neymar from Barcelona back in 2017, and they aren’t willing to let him return without getting their money back. To try and solve the issue, Barcelona are prepared to offer a player (or players) plus cash deal, and Dembele is one of the potential candidates to head for Paris.
PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel worked with Dembele at Borussia Dortmund and is keen on the idea, but Dembele himself apparently isn’t. Tuchel called the young winger in an attempt to convince him, but the answer he got was negative.
