I want to play for Barcelona – Dembele

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele is reported to have told Barcelona’s technical secretary, Robert Fernandez, that he wants to play for Barcelona in the future.

The 19-year-old attacker joined Borussia Dortmund in summer from Rennes, although Barca were one of many top clubs credited with an interest.

Dembele has got off to a bright start in Germany, having played in every game for Thomas Tuchel’s men so far this season in all competitions.

The France international says he hopes to take a step beyond the Bundesliga club, though, with Barca his main destination.

“Not now, because I want to grow and be a protagonist every Sunday,” Mundo Deportivo claim he said to Fernandez when approached earlier in 2016. “But one day I will play for Barcelona.”
