However, Dembele is being monitored by a host of European clubs including Manchester United and Arsenal as doubts remain over his future at the Nou Camp. 

Dembele has fallen down the pecking order since Ronald Koeman’s arrival – having only started four games this season.

A £368m release clause was inserted into Dembele’s Barca contract, but now the club run the real risk of seeing the player walk away without them recouping a penny.

Dembele currently has a year-and-a-half left on his contract, but it is believed he has a ‘plan’ to run down lucrative contract and leave for free in 2022. 

Cash-strapped Barca are determined to prevent such an eventuality and will look to generate funds with his potential sale instead.
