Dembele’s agent gives vague response amid PSG speculation

Speculation linking Ousmane Dembele to PSG as part of a Neymar deal “doesn’t concern us”, according to his agent.

PSG are reportedly willing to let Neymar leave, but only if their demands are met, as per reports in the European papers.

The Catalan outfit tabled a cash only offer for Neymar, but PSG have asked for £100m plus Nelson Semedo and Dembele.

Dembele’s agent was vague in his response to media questions over Dembele’s involvement in a Neymar deal and had no record of a meeting between Barca and PSG, reports Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.

Neymar left Barcelona for PSG back in 2017, in a world-record £189million move, but is keen on a return to Spain to either Real Madrid or back to Barcelona.

Barcelona used £135million of that money to sign Dembele from Dortmund and while the young forward has shown flashes of brilliance, he has failed to make a significant impact at the Nou Camp.

Injuries have played a part in Dembele’s struggles, although Barca are also said to be frustrated with Dembele’s lack of professionalism.

PSG sporting director Leonardo however, is known to be a big fan of Dembele and wants him involved in any deal that would see Neymar leave the French Capital.

Neymar has yet to feature for PSG this season after failing to report back for pre-season training in time.

The two clubs have only until September 2 to strike a deal, when the European transfer window shuts.
