Dembele arrived in Barcelona

Ousmane Dembele has arrived in Barcelona to sign his contract with Barcelona.

Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement Friday, for the transfer of the French forward to Camp Nou. The Catalans will pay the Germans €105m plus bonuses.

The player offered his first reactions to the Barcelona TV channel: “I am very happy to be here. As I said before, it’s a dream come true. I am very happy to have arrived here, at such a big club.”

“It’s a dream to be part of the best club in the world, with the best players in the world. It’s an honour. My objective is to give everything for the club and win as many trophies as possible with Barcelona”, the 20-year-old added.

Dembele landed in Barcelona Sunday evening and went directly to the Camp Nou stadium. On Monday, he will sign the 5-year deal with the Catalans and then the official presentation will take place.

Ousmane Dembele has become the second most expensive transfer in history, after the one of Neymar to PSG. The French forward played for Rennes in the 2015/2016 season and then for Borussia Dortmund in the 2016/2017 season. It has already been announced that Dembele will wear the number 11 shirt, left vacant by Neymar.
