Dortmund to provide Sunday update on Barca target Dembele

Raf Honigstein suggests Ousmane Dembele moving to Barcelona is no guarantee, and explains Dortmund's looming predicament.

OUSMANE DEMBELE has been suspended indefinitely by Borussia Dortmund as he continues fighting for a move to Barcelona.

Barcelona have seen big offers for the Liverpool playmaker and Borussia Dortmund forward rejected by their clubs as they look for viable alternatives to Neymar, who departed in a world-record £200m deal to Paris Saint-Germain.

Peter Bosz's men won that game 4-0 but will not welcome Dembele back into the fold for their Bundesliga opener against Wolfsburg next weekend.

Earlier this week, chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said a fee of €100m for the player was "in every case, not enough" and the Bundesliga club's asking price is reported to lie closer to €135m.

He also hit out at Nitish Kumar, upset that he "did not even discuss with us" the decision to partner with the BJP in Bihar. The party today said the vote from lone JD (U) MLA in Gujarat, Chhotubhai Vasava, clinched Patel's victory.

However, just hours later Dortmund released a statement clarifying their position - they would not sell Dembele for such a fee and that they had suspended and fined the France global for breaching club rules in not turning up for compulsory training sessions.

"Ousmane Dembele has, of course, the opportunity to train individually, away from the squad".

Dortmund added that they "will not make any more comments on the situation beyond this statement".

And Bosz has revealed Dembele's future should be clearer by Sunday, when the club will provide an update after holding talks to decide their next move when their cup tie is over.

Dortmund had expected to bring in substantial funds for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer but later took him off the market as they said they would not have time to identify a replacement.
