Barcelona continue to move quickly to find a replacement for Neymar before the Spanish Supercup against Real Madrid, and they might get a deal done really soon.

According to respected Catalan journalist Gerard Romero, Barça directors are currently in Germany to finalize a deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele, perhaps the perfect replacement to Neymar available in the market. Dortmund have reportedly set a price tag of 100 million euros on Dembele, and Barça certainly have the funds to complete that deal.

Dortmund officials have stated over the weekend that Dembele is not for sale, but if Barça make the offer for the price they want and the player is willing to move, it’s hard to see this deal not going through. Barça also hope to convince Liverpool to sell Philippe Coutinho, but it seems like Dembele’s signing is much more likely at the moment.

Let’s wait for further developments.
