Deal off: Chelsea transfer target set to accept Barcelona offer

Posted by

Chelsea may reportedly be about to miss out on the transfer of Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.

The France international is in the final few days of his contract with Barca, and had looked set for a move away from the Nou Camp on a free transfer this summer.

Dembele has recently been linked with Chelsea by the Sun, but it seems the Blues may be about to miss out on his signature, according to the latest reports coming out of Spain.

See the tweet below from journalist Javi Miguel, who says that Dembele looks set to make a U-tur and accept the contract that’s been on the table for him from Barcelona for the last few months…

Chelsea fans will surely be wondering why this move has fallen through, with Dembele looking like he could’ve been a smart signing for a very low cost.

Thomas Tuchel worked with Dembele at Borussia Dortmund and seems ideal to get the 25-year-old back to his best, but it seems his preference is to continue under Xavi, who also seems to have done some fine work to help him improve his game.

Chelsea have also been linked with Leeds United star Raphinha by The Athletic, and he could be a decent alternative to Dembele, giving CFC a much-needed upgrade on flops like Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic.

  1. You think a relegation side player is a better option than Dembele are you off your head??
    Get it done.. Rid ourselves of Werner, Pulisic, Zyech

  2. I think the days of chelsea getting the very top players are in the past.
    Plus we spend way too much time before making a sensible offer.
    City are like we were a few years ago, they get the the best players and their business is done swiftly without all the fuss.

    1. True. I don’t even know what this Todd thing is doing. Or will he sign baseball players to play football?

    2. That’s the most intelligent remark made by a Chelsea fan for a long time. I’m a diehard Chelsea fan but Chelsea has been dying a slow death since the circus of Mourinho’s three appointments and the toxic presence of player power. Thats why I really like how Boehly swiftly shipped out Lukaku and backed Tuchel! Hopefully we can get back to being professional and champions once again!!

  3. The problem with the most fans and writers for English premiership is myopic thinking,imaging Jamie carragher saying there is a doubt about Frenkie de jong making I in EPL when players such as dias of Dias of man .city,luiz dias of Liverpool playing in a less competitive league in portugal playing so well in EPL,Rafinha is a good player no doubt,he is a big fish in small water,while Dembele is a fish in a big ocean,until he play for a big team before you can access him

  4. Plz sign abrilliant footballer who knows football not aparticular league or system player.

  5. Tell Dembele to jog on, out injured more than sick note pulsilic, also we dont need sterling waste of money.

  6. Pls can u people tell me , why is this owners would not want to replicate what abramovish did, why are they planing to sign sterling who misses more chances like pulisic,I think Chelsea are getting it wrong , well tuchel do not even know what is doing ,I think he would get
    that same result he got last season , without a top 4 finish this time

  7. The prolblem is to sign players not been interested In players buy them look at city liverpool and spurs are buying good players why can’t chelsea board buy players for Christ sake

  8. Tuchel is not acting fast to get the good and talented players in the transfer widow I still don’t know what is Chelsea main problem Marcus aloso and ceaser apliqueter should depart from Stamford bridge for young and talented players to be brought up ,, The progress of Chelsea FC lies in our own hands

  9. I personally don’t know why the Chelsea new owners haven’t signed any player this season,i mean they have been linked with the likes of De Ligt,Kounde,Bastoni and the rest of them but still no signing yet.why don’t chelsea go with this crazy squad next season like:Mendy,De Ligt,Silva and Kounde at the back three while Chilwell and James oprate at the wings as normal,Kovacic as the centre mid while Kante play the number 4,Mount at left forward,Lewandowski at centre forward and Asensio at right forward.I think this squad can challenge the likes of City and Liverpool.

  10. Leeds were battling relegation due to a spate of injuries to their best players.

    At one point, Patrick Bamford, the Leeds starting center forward, Kalvin Philips, the Leeds first XI defensive midfielder, and staring right back Stuart Dallas center back Junior Firpo, and midfielder Adam Forshaw were all injured. In their secoind year back in the the top level of English football, Leeds lacked the depth to overcome these injuries.

    The manager was the scape goat and manager Jesse Marsch named a hero for keeping leeds up, but it was injuries and a thin squad that created the crisis, not poor management.
