Dembele Bid Fails

Dembele Bid Fails

Barcelona's bid for Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele has failed.

So far, the Barca attempts to bring attacking options to the Nou Camp haven't proven too successful recently as a bid for Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho also failed.

The BBC said: 'The German club confirmed they have met Barca representatives but the offer for the 20-year-old did not meet their valuation of the France international, who has seven caps for his country.'

Dembele missed training for Dortmund today but a move to Spain 'is not currently likely.'

The clubs' boss Peter Bosz confirmed Dembele's absence from training but doesn't know where the French international is as he didn't answer his phone when contacted.

Bosz was quoted by Sky Sports: 'Dembele wasn't at training today. I have no idea why he wasn't there. We tried to reach him but couldn't. First I have to talk to Dembele, then he has to explain to me why he wasn't here today. I hope nothing serious happened.'

It had been said Dembele, 20, wasn't for sale but Sky Sports also reported he could leave for £135m, having joined Dortmund from French club Rennes for £13m.
