Barcelona aren’t able to rid themselves of Ousmane Dembele

One could suggest that Barcelona, given all of their financial troubles, have had a relatively good transfer window.

Signing Ferran Torres, Adama Traore and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang isn’t bad business at all.

However, the one piece of business that they clearly wanted to do, they weren’t able to complete.

Once the club made an official announcement that Ousmane Dembele was no longer part of their plans, they should’ve put in place something that ensured he had to move before the end of the current transfer window.

It isn’t clear if the Catalans themselves turned down any offers from clubs, but the end result is that the French World Cup winner won’t now move.

Despite his poor attitude, he could be a game winner for the club, and that’s all they really need to worry about at this point.
