The transfer market has truly gone mad! Following Paul Pogba’s £89m move last summer people thought the market was crazy enough as it is, but we are now close to the second ever over £100m deal in the space of just two weeks.
Neymar still holds the world record fee for his €222m move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain and his potential replacement is set to cost Barcelona up to €145m.
Borussia Dortmund have announced they are close to reaching a deal with Barcelona for Ousmane Dembele to join the Catalan giants.
Barcelona have been chasing Dembele for weeks now but have been unable to finalize a deal.
However, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed Friday that a deal is pretty close.
“I can only tell you that we are on the way [to reaching an agreement], but we’ve not reached the end yet,” he said.
Multiple reports claim the fee would be a lump sum of €105m, with add-ons running to an additional €40m.
