PSG make another approach for Dembele

The Premier League transfer window has closed so we no longer have to put up with Ousmane Dembele to Arsenal rumors, but instead it’s over to PSG to feed the gossip columns.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the French club have been in contact with his agent in a bid to tempt him away from the Camp Nou.

Thomas Tuchel is a big fan of Dembele and the feeling seems to be mutual. Barca want to keep the Frenchman, but they have signed Malcom and will consider an offer if it’s big enough.

Barcelona never made an offer for Pogba

This summer has seen plenty of rumors about a Barcelona move for Paul Pogba, but Marca reckon that the club never made an offer for the Manchester United man.

The thing is Barcelona can’t actually afford to bring in Pogba at the moment. Not only would he cost a packet to sign, he would also command a huge salary.

However, Barcelona were happy for the rumors to fly around which suggests they might come back in for the World Cup winner at some point in the future.

Bayern latest club to be linked with Rakitic

Meanwhile, Ivan Rakitic continues to find his name in the rumor mill. First it was PSG and Monaco, now you can add Bayern Munich to his list of suitors.

Mundo Deportivo reckon that new manager Niko Kovac thinks his compatriot would be a great fit for his Bayern Munich side.

He’s willing to make a tasty Rakitic an offer to swap the Camp Nou for the Allianz Arena before the close of the transfer window.
