– He joined the Catalans in the summer of 2017 after Neymar joined PSG
– The Argentine captain wants the French man gone as both do not have good connection on the pitch
Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has reportedly told the Spanish League champions to offload France international Ousmane Dembele.
The Russia 2018 World Cup winning attacker played just six minutes in the Catalans 1-1 draw away to Valencia at the Mestalla on Sunday, October 7.
Ezequiel Garay got the home started to a flying start after putting his side ahead just two minutes in the game.
Messi leveled up for the visitors in the 23rd minute as both sides shared the spoils at the end of normal regulation period.
Don Balon however reports that the Argentine is not comfortable with the former Borussia Dortmund forward on the pitch over his lack of defensive abilities.
However, the decision seems to have to do with Leo Messi, who does not find a stable relationship within the field of play with the French.
The Argentine’s close relationship with Philippe Coutinho, Luiz Suarez and Arthur has forced coach Ernesto Valverde to begin to leave Dembele out despite his good scoring records.
And the club’s technical secretary is already beginning to get rid of French star next season as they plan to land want away PSG star Adrien Rabiot.
Rabiot for 40 million in winter and sell to Dembelé for 100-120 million euros in summer seems the master plan of Barça in the next markets.
TRACKNEWS.NG earlier reported that Barcelona settled for a 1-1 draw for the second week running in La Liga as they were matched by Valencia at the Mestalla.
Lionel Messi scored the equaliser for the Catalans in the 23rd minute after trailing for the first 21 minutes of the game.
The Blaugrana have now slipped down to the second position on the log after Sevilla displaced them at the top spot.
