Barcelona have confirmed the signing of young French sensation Ousmane Dembélé from Borussia Dortmund. The Catalan club confirmed the signing on Friday afternoon by releasing an official statement saying, “FC Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement for the transfer of Ousmane Dembélé for 105 million euros plus add-ons. The player will sign a five-year contract and his buy out-clause is set at 400 million euros.”

“Dembélé will arrive in Barcelona on Sunday and he will undergo a medical on Monday morning local time. Shortly, more details of the running order of the player’s presentation on Monday will be available. “

The transfer fee of €105 million plus €42 million euros in add-ons will make this the second most expensive transfer in football history, after Neymar’s move from Barcelona to PSG for 222 million euros earlier this month. Dembélé will wear the number 11 shirt, taking over the number after Neymar’s departure to the Parisiens.

This transfer was hardly easy to complete with Borussia Dortmund staying firm in their evaluation. Dembélé had been suspended by Dortmund since he boycotted training on August 10 in protest after the German giants rejected Barcelona’s first offer. The Frenchman scored 10 goals and provided 21 assists, last season, with a goal contribution every 109 minutes.

He struck up a sensational partnership with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and both were successful in helping Borussia Dortmund win their first trophy in nearly five years. He can play on either wing in attack and last season he completed 103 successful dribbles, more than anyone else in the Bundesliga.
