Barcelona signs Dembele for £96m club record fee
Ousmane Dembele has completed his move to Barcelona after weeks of talks between Dortmund and the Catalan giants.
The Catalan club confirmed the news on their Twitter page, with an image of Dembele in a Barca shirt.
Bacelona have been vigorous in the transfer market kin their quest to replace Neymar who joined PSG on a £198m world transfer record fee two weeks ago.
Barca see 20-year-old Dembele as the ideal replacement for Neymar, but hand their official bid for the player rejected earlier because it was reported Dortmund would only let the 20-year-old attacker leave at £96m.
It was also stressed in the club statement that Dembele's release clause is €400m - approximately £368m - which is significantly higher than Neymar's, which was triggered by PSG.
