BID REJECTED! Borussia Dortmund turn down Barcelona offer for Ousmane Dembele

As Borussia Dortmund participated in media day, everyone among the squad and coaching stuff were enjoying themselves - everyone that is except one Ousmane Dembele.

Dembele, who has made no secret of his desire to play for Barcelona, failed to show up for practice on Thursday.

The 20-year-old Frenchman skipped training with Dortmund on Thursday and was swiftly suspended by the Bundesliga club.

Reports in Germany suggest a delegation from the La Liga club have visited Borussia Dortmund today finalising a £100m deal for brilliant youngster Dembele.

"As there is no other offer on the table, a transfer by the player to FC Barcelona is not at this time expected nor now very likely", said a club statement.

"The representatives of FC Barcelona submitted a bid which did not correspond to the player's extraordinary footballing abilities nor to the present economic market situation of the European transfer market".

The winger has been linked to a move to the Catalan side, with reports in Spain stating he has already reached an agreement to join Ernesto Valverde's side.

Ahead of Dortmund's DFB Pokal first round match against Rielasingen on Saturday, Bosz told reporters at a news conference: "It's true, he wasn't there today and to be honest I don't know why". BVB have turned this offer down.

"He wasn't there this morning and if I am completely honest I have to say that I have no idea why he wasn't", said Bosz.

The France worldwide scored 10 goals in 49 appearances last season after joining Dortmund for £13m from Rennes and helped the club win the DFB-Pokal Cup. We hope nothing bad has happened'.
