Ousmane Dembele transfer: Dortmund extend player's suspension amid Barcelona interest

Barcelona Transfer News Ousmane Dembele bid accepted

The Bundesliga club rejected an initial bid from Barcelona last week for the 20-year-old, who was one of the stars of the season for the club in 2016-17, as the Liga giants seek to fill the void created by Neymar's exit to Paris Saint-Germain.

Barcelona target Ousmane Dembele has had his Borussia Dortmund suspension extended indefinitely, the club have confirmed.

The fallout over that Google diversity memo rages on
Ads criticizing Google over firing James Damore have been plastered on benches and bus stops near the company's office in Venice. The document slammed Google's "politically correct monoculture" and advanced gender stereotypes about women in the workplace.

"Borussia Dortmund have chose to suspend Ousmane Dembele from training with the team until further notice", read a statement on the club's official website.

And Dortmund have now made the decision not to lift the suspension on Dembele, with Sporting director Michael Zorc telling Dortmund's website: "Our focus now is on a concentrated preparation of the team for the Bundesliga opening match against Wolfsburg in the coming weekend". Chelsea must spend, spend, spend! "Dembele, of course, has the opportunity to complete an individual training session outside the group".

Dembele scored 10 goals and supplied 21 assists in 49 games for Dortmund in his debut season with the club.
