Barcelona Confirms Signing of Ousmane Dembélé from Borussia Dortmund

Barcelona have announced the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund.

The Catalan club confirmed the news on their Twitter page, with an image of Dembele in a Barca shirt, and in a statement on their website they called him ‘one of the best on the continent’.

He arrives as a replacement up front for Neymar, who left for PSG earlier this month on a world record fee. Dembele will wear the No 11 – vacated by the Brazilian’s departure.

The club confirmed the transfer fee is £96million plus add-ons, making Dembele the second most expensive player of all time, after Neymar cost the Ligue 1 side £198m.

Dortmund claim on their website that the add-ons are potentially worth ’40 percent of the amount of the fixed transfer’ – which would be an additional £13.6m, meaning the total transfer could eventually cost nearly £110m.
