The France international has alienated team-mates with his behavior and this could mean his exit from the Spanish football club.
Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele appears set to leave the club in January if an offer arrives, according to Don Balon.
Dembele has turned his team-mates off with his attitude since joining the club, arriving late to training and showing disdain for fellow Barca players.
With Messi out, he was expected to replace the 5-time Ballon d’Or holder, but he didn’t even get off the bench in Wednesday’s win over Inter, a proof of where he currently stands at Camp Nou.
Valverde is also reported to be losing patience with him. Against Sevilla, after Messi got injured, Valverde was seen impatient with the time he used in getting kit up, and his lackadaisical attitude on the pitch.
Does this mean he will be out of the club this winter?
Let’s fold our arms and watch, but the signs aren’t promising.
