Ousmane Dembele signs for Barcelona

Barcelona have officially confirmed the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for an initial fee of around £96.6m.

The deal is likely to rise to around £135.5m with the numerous add-ons negotiated as part of the agreement.

Dembele had been the strong subject of speculation in recent weeks following Neymar's departure to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record £198m sum. Dortmund were initially reluctant to part ways with their promising prospect, but the chance to make a hefty profit from the youngster was too hard to refuse. The German giants have since recruited Andriy Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kyiv to fill the void.
