Dortmund say Barcelona target Ousmane Dembele remains suspended

Barcelona finalise deal for Paulinho

Dortmund met with Barcelona's representatives but the Spanish club did not meet their valuation.

Armed with an extra £198 million following Neymar's sale to Paris Saint-Germain, the Catalan giants are on the market for a direct replacement for the Brazilian global as well as a high-profile addition to the squad.

Speculation mounted that the France forward was Camp Nou-bound, after he missed training without permission on Thursday.

Dortmund had expected to bring in substantial funds for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer but later took him off the market as they said they would not have time to identify a replacement.

Dortmund's Director of Football Michael Zorc said of the situation, "Our focus now is on preparation for the Bundesliga opening match in Wolfsburg [on 19 August]".

"Ousmane Dembele has the possibility to do individual training away from the group".

The 20-year-old was initially suspended after missing training earlier in the week when Dortmund rejected a reported £90million bid from Barcelona.

Peter Bosz's men won that game 4-0 but will not welcome Dembele back into the fold for their Bundesliga opener against Wolfsburg next weekend.

Dembele scored six goals in 32 Bundesliga appearances last season, having moved to Signal Iduna Park from Rennes in July 2016. "Whatever happens, happens. It's a hard situation".
