Sports news is circulating around no one but Moussa Dembele.
Barcelona’s €105 million staggering bid for the Borussia Dortmund (former) player has been accepted, but this fee could increase to €147 million due to bonuses.
This is the second most expensive transfer in football history, coming second to no other but Neymar’s astronomical €222 million bid that saw him leave Barcelona for PSG.
Neymar’s departure kinda left a gap in Barcelona’s tactical plan, and the club has been in the market for an equally good replacement. They dipped their hand in the bag for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho but were rejected.
So now that they have their replacement, the question is; how will Dembele fare at Barcelona?
I have watched some videos of his performance on YouTube, and I think he levels up to his Barca predecessor. I’m not just saying this because I’m a Barca fan, but you can YouTube him up and see what I’m saying.
His touch on the ball is excellent, his dribbling is masterclass, his pace… Oh My God! He’s incredibly fast, explosive I’d say.
If you ask me, I think Barca have their man, he’s an excellent capture for the club, and he’d surely relish playing alongside Messi.
