Barcelona news: Ousmane Dembele could join Liverpool as players turn on star | Football | Sport

Dembele’s future at Barcelona has been plunged further into doubt with reports from Don Balon that his team-mates have turned on him.

The Spanish outlet say members of the Catalan giants’ squad were livid with Dembele for his poor display against Levante.

It is said they privately criticised the 20-year-old, believing he was not worth his huge price tag.

They reportedly think he faces a fight to ever prove a worthy replacement to Neymar.

Neymar was sold to PSG last summer with Barcelona then rushing a Dembele deal as a result.

Liverpool reportedly want Barcelona forward Dembele, who has toiled ever since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

The France international could leave the club having failed to gel with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.

Dembele toiled for Barcelona as they saw their dreams of an unbeaten La Liga campaign fade with a shock 5-4 loss to Levante last night.

And, Don Balon point out a move away could now unfold this summer – either on loan or in a permanent deal.

Liverpool appear to be in pole position to secure the arrival of the forward.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was his landlord during his Dortmund days and, though the Barcelona star left his property in a mess when he left the Bundesliga, he could rescue him form his Catalonia nightmare.

Meanwhile, Dortmund hero Roman Weidenfeller has hit out at Dembele for rushing his Barcelona move.

“Dembele, at the age of 19, was given the opportunity to make a name for himself at Dortmund,” he said.

“It was here that he turned himself into a player Barcelona wanted to buy – but rather than being thankful he decides to leave the club by staying at home, going on strike, abandoning his teammates.

“That’s just bad style – no manners.”
