Bartomeu: Dembele will not be sold.



Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says Ousmane Dembele will not be sold this summer.

The 21-year-old has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks after reports suggested the Barca were looking to loan out the £98million attacker next season.

"[Philippe] Coutinho, Dembele are for us a big investment," he said. "They are very important players that we expect from them a lot.

"Coutinho probably in the last four months has been very active for the team. But Dembele is a very young player, a very talented player that we are, of course, expecting from him a lot. He’s been demonstrating during the season that he’s a good young player for us. But, of course, next season will be different.

"It’s not easy to play in Barcelona the first year because the model of football is quite different from the rest. But after one year I’m sure we are going to see Dembele and Coutinho at a very high level."
