New Barcelona signing Ousmane Dembele has opened up about his transfer to La Liga from Bundesliga, and some of the details don't exactly paint the player in a loyal light. "Can you imagine? Just six months!" he told Sport when probed on why he rejected Barca's advances.

"Why did I chose Dortmund a year ago?"

"I'd been a professional at Rennes for just six months".

Dembele came in for criticism during his final days at Dortmund for skipping training sessions as he tried to force a move. I don't know if it will be hard for me to adapt.

"I didn't want to go". I looked for an excuse not to go. If it had not gone well, and I would not have put everything on my part to sign for Barcelona, now I would be regretting not being here.' .

OUSMANE DEMBELE has revealed how Andres Iniesta's famous goal against Chelsea inspired him to support Barcelona. Even before his move to Dortmund, Dembele was attracting interest from the top clubs across Europe while he was at Rennes. I made a decision to stop going to workouts.

"I wanted to learn, play Champions League games, know what that competition was, to play a whole season with a big team, playing regularly, developing", he said.

On Saturday, Liverpool sources dismissed claims made by Barcelona director Albert Soler, who said the Premier League side were demanding 200 million euros ($237.14 million) for Coutinho.

"Barcelona had not done great in the first leg but in the second leg they produced a brilliant performance, with four goals from Messi - that's when I realised Messi's not from this world". Messi always plays at an exalted level. "He's the best player in history".
