No negotiations with Barcelona for Dembele - Dortmund's Zorc

The Catalans have reportedly agreed on a 5-year deal to bring Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona.

According to Martin Mosnier of Eurosport France (h/t Jack Otway of the Daily Express), Dembele is considering leaving BVB after just one season following manager Thomas Tuchel's dismissal, and Premier League pair United and Chelsea are also interested in signing him as well as the Blaugrana.

BREAKING:"Ousmane Dembele has a long-term contract, Director Michael Zorc told Waz. He will play for BVB in the coming season".

Dembele has pace to burn and his direct running and neat footwork make him hard for defenders to contain.

It's claimed that Barcelona essentially want to convince Dembele to wait for them and to not commit to another club this summer, and the same goes for Dortmund.

Dortmund signed Dembele from Rennes last summer for €12 million and the player himself has since confirmed that Barca made a move for him at the same time. "I have a contract until 2021 and I'm not paying attention to what is being said [about the future]".

Tuchel brough in Dembele from Rennes last summer, with the 20-year-old scoring 10 goals and providing an incredible 21 assists in all competitions for Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele has been named the Bundesliga's Rookie of the Season.
