But his former team-mate Aubameyang says occurring strike used to be now not the proper factor to do.
“Everyone was a little bit scared by his departure,” Aubameyang informed RMC.
“He had an settlement with the membership that if Barcelona got here, they wouldn’t save you him from leaving.
“Afterwards, everybody stated it used to be now not the most efficient factor that he did (to head on strike).
“I feel that is true, since he had handiest to talk first with Dortmund to understand in the event that they had been going to let him cross.
“If that they had stated no, I can have understood what he did. I feel he did it slightly too early.
“But howdy, it is my pal, so I can now not spoil him! [laughs] I know it utterly as a result of it is his dream (to transport to Barcelona).
“He has realised it now and I am more than pleased for him.”
Dembele is but to attain for his new membership and suffered a hamstring damage remaining weekend which has dominated him out for round 4 months.
