Barcelona are furious with duo for refusing to leave after it prevented Ronald Koeman signing his main target

Clubs will do all they can to hang someone out to dry when they decide they want them to leave, but it’s easy to forget that they did agree to offer a contract to every player so they can’t be too outraged when they need to stick to it.

Barcelona are struggling financially just now so they weren’t in a position to sign anyone until someone left first, but it looks like it’s created a bit of tension at the Nou Camp.

ESPN reported that Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele were reluctant to leave the club this summer, and Barca are absolutely furious with them because it ruined their chances of strengthening the squad.

They confirm that Dembele had an offer from Man United which he didn’t accept, although it’s not clear if Umtiti had any credible offers to move on after he made it clear that he wasn’t going anywhere.

Barca tried to force both towards the exit door by reinforcing the fact that they wouldn’t have a regular place in the team, and it was hoped that getting rid of the duo would free up the funds to sign Memphis Depay from Lyon.

That didn’t happen and Umtiti and Dembele are still at the Nou Camp so that will result in an awkward situation, but Barca only have themselves to blame after spending so much money and dishing out huge contracts on so many signings that haven’t worked out.

    If someone should leave Barca now, it should be Griezmann, Dembele has made the right choice to stay! Give him more chances and you will see that he is very far better than Depay, Griezmann and even Latauro Martinez.

    Koaman is making a mistake with Dembele, Messi is the only player whose is better than Dembele currently at club, Ansu Fati is just good for small games ,

    pls give Dembele more playing time he we do things to surprise you koeman , but think there is flop like griezmann that can do any in full 90min without change any thing in match , but you are not again him is only dembele that just came back from injury since and he never play any 45min complete , since when he back from injury but griezmann are playing every match and he is contribute anything strong to the club, see if well you i sell griezmann and live dembele , ok let see what Barcelona front need dembele can dribble and worry defenders and give assistance and across ball well than griezmann, ok griezmann can drible in front , i can remember when came to barca he can drible defenders and score , so i think that is good and ok for barca front , and it make Messi free and he score goal well well and when dembele play match messi get free down when you play griezmann , because all go for only Messi , because is nt doing anything sorry talk
