Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has been talking to El Partidazo de COPE and had some interesting thing to say.

He ruled out bringing Neymar back to Barcelona, said he does not want to sell Philippe Coutinho and reckons he’ll give Lionel Messi another renewal.

He also admitted to having had a late night chat with Ousmane Dembele, who he says is determined to succeed at Barcelona.

“We hope Dembele continues like this,” he said. “He has great talent, every time he comes out to play, he’s surprising us, I’ve talked to him at 1.30 in the morning, he wants to succeed, he’s winning the heart of the Catalans.”

Maybe Bartomeu is the reason Dembele has been late for training?
