DUESSELDORF, Germany (Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund (BVB) said on Friday that no decision had been made yet to transfer Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona, denying a German newspaper report.
“We have set Barcelona a deadline, and either something will happen or it won‘t,” a spokesman for Dortmund said.
German daily Bild had reported on Thursday that Barcelona had agreed a fee for the transfer of Dembele to Spain, ending a saga that led to the talented 20-year-old winger being suspended by the Bundesliga club.
Citing unnamed sources it had said Barcelona had agreed to pay Dortmund 120 million euros (110.42 million pounds), or up to 150 million euros depending on performance bonuses, making it the second most expensive signing ever.
