Ousmane Dembele was back in training for Barcelona on Tuesday after reportedly missing Monday’s session due to illness.

There was huge speculation about Dembele’s future on deadline day with the Frenchman tipped to make a late move to Premier League side Manchester United.

Yet Dembele is staying with the club and was back at work at a pretty sparse training ground as most of the first-team squad are away on international duty.

Barca’s next game is not until October 18 when they visit Getafe, but they do have a pretty hectic fixture list at the end of the month with games against Real Madrid, Juventus and Ferencvaros also to come.

Dembele was a second-half substitute in Barca’s 4-0 win over Villarreal in their first game of 2020-21 but hasn’t made it off the bench since then.
