Dembele 'agrees' to join new club

LaLiga

It appears Ousmane Dembele has decided to leave Barcelona, having reportedly agreed to join another one of Europe's biggest clubs.

After a breakdown in contract renewal negotiations between the LaLiga side and the player's representatives, the Catalan giants resorted to asking the French star to leave the Camp Nou back in January.

Here are some top players who have recently been linked with a move to Chelsea!

He ended up staying in Spain, though, and worked his way back into Xavi Hernandez's starting XI in the months that followed.

Despite the winger becoming an important member of the first team, Barca have not been able to agree a new deal with Dembele's camp, with his contract is set to expire at the end of June.

Paris Saint-Germain have been widely tipped as the team leading the race for Dembele's signature, while Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has reportedly also shown a keenness to reunite with the star after their time together at Borussia Dortmund.

According to French outlet Le10sport, the 25-year-old has now agreed to sign for the Blues.

It is further claimed that Dembele waited to see what would happen around Chelsea's ownership before committing to the decision to move to London.

There were reports Liverpool were ready to enter the race for the France international's signature after it emerged that Sadio Mane could leave Anfield, but it now appears that the Blues have secured his signature.
