TRANSFER ALERT: Barcelona sign Ousmane Dembele from Dortmund for £135.5m

Spanish club Barcelona have completed a £135.5m deal to sign Dortmund star, Ousmane Dembele.

The deal is the second most expensive of all time, behind Neymar’s recent £200m move to Paris St-Germain.

The 20-year-old French forward has become the most expensive player in Barcelona’s history after signing a five-year deal with the Catalan club today, August 28.

“I’m very happy to be here,” Dembele said at his official unveiling. “It has always been my dream to be at Barcelona and now I’m here I’m very happy to have achieved my dream.”

“It is the best club in the world with the best players in the world.”

Dembele arrived in Barcelona on Sunday and underwent a medical on Monday before signing his contract alongside the club president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Dembele becomes Barca’s fifth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Marlon Santos, Gerard Deulofeu, Nelson Semedo and Paulinho.
