"KGaA ("BVB") has held a meeting with the Catalan football club FC Barcelona about a possible transfer of BVB player Ousmane Dembele to FC Barcelona", they wrote.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND have sensationally revealed that Barcelona target Ousmane Dembele missed training this morning and is now AWOL.

"As there is no other offer from FC Barcelona until now, the transfer of Dembele to Barcelona isn't likely".

While the total of the Blaugrana offer is as yet unknown, BVB recently warned the Liga giants that they wanted more than £100 million (€110m) for him.

Earlier this week, Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said a fee of €100m for the player was "in every case, not enough" and the Bundesliga side's asking price is reported to lie closer to €135m.

The 20-year-old, who has been capped by France on seven occasions at senior level, is a very exciting prospect and, given his potential, could well be seen by Barcelona as a direct replacement for Neymar.

This policy comes with its own rules; only drones that are over military bases and that are a possible threat can be taken down. That announcement didn't say anything about the military reserving the right to obliterate or intercept drones, however.


Dortmund later confirmed that the player would be given a fine and be suspended for their DfB Pokal cup match against non-league Rielasingen this weekend.

Bosz had said: "Dembele was in training today".

Bosz said the player has not given him and the Technical team any reason for his absence.

"I talked to Dembele yesterday [Wednesday]". Aarons cited a report from French publication L'Equipe, as well as one from Sky Germany, both indicating Dembele will move to the Camp Nou, with L'Equipesaying the ex-Rennes ace will fly to Barca imminently.

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".
