When Neymar left FC Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain, Ousmane Dembele was the main candidate to replace him. He was a really technically forward at Borussia Dortmund and that’s why the team spent a lot of money on him. But he got injured again, and again now.
Why did FC Barcelona lose millions? Because there were rumors that said that the team would use Dembele to make a trade with Manchester United. Red Devils are interested in the player and FC Barcelona has no money so it would have been very useful for Koeman to sell him.
Now that he is injured, they cannot sell him or use him for a trade. Who would want a player that is so young and has nine injuries in 4 seasons? The truth is that nobody. The investment was huge for FC Barcelona, they spent almost $150 million dollars and for now, they are losing that money.
During this season, Dembele played 8 matches and scored only one goal, he did not become the key player that the team expected. Now he will have to wait until 2021. Besides, FC Barcelona cannot rely on him so maybe they try to sign another forward to fight for the Champions League trophy.
