I want to play for Barcelona - Dembele | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


Ousmane Dembele is reported to have told Barcelona's technical secretary, Robert Fernandez, that he wants to play for Barcelona in the future.

The 19-year-old attacker joined Borussia Dortmund in summer from Rennes, although Barca were one of many top clubs credited with an interest.

Dembele has got off to a bright start in Germany, having played in every game for Thomas Tuchel's men so far this season in all competitions.

The France international says he hopes to take a step beyond the Bundesliga club, though, with Barca his main destination.

"Not now, because I want to grow and be a protagonist every Sunday," Mundo Deportivo claim he said to Fernandez when approached earlier in 2016. "But one day I will play for Barcelona."

Dembele has scored one and set up four in 10 appearances in all competitions this term. He is contracted to Dortmund until 2021.
