The Bundesliga season is officially underway. On Saturday, Dortmund started perfectly with a 3-0 win over Wolfsburg. BVB looked confident and creative going forward, even without want-away star Ousmane Dembélé.

Dembélé is still suspended from Dortmund’s games and training, and many players around the club have criticized his behavior. It seems like he has played his last game in the black and yellow, and now a move away may actually be coming to fruition.

According to a report from Get French Football, Dembélé’s transfer to Barcelona is very close.

French winger and Dortmund man Ousmane Dembélé is hours away from completing a move to FC Barcelona, sources have indicated to Get French Football News.

The player has spent most of the week in France, but is now expected to travel to Barcelona to complete a move.

When all is said and done, the deal is expected to reach around the €120m mark.

The source reporting this is certainly credible, but this is not even close to being confirmed yet. We’ll find out how close the move really is in the next few hours.

A fee of €120 million would be a solid return for a player who says he will never play for Dortmund again. At that price, just sell and get this ugly saga over with.

Ousmane Dembélé is a very talented player, but his relationship with BVB is inoperable at this point. Dortmund have a strong squad and will be fine without his immaturity and with some more funds for reinforcements.
