DONE DEAL: Chelsea finally complete transfer deal to sign Barca striker

The twists and turns of deadline day are truly unparalleled, especially as a Barcelona fan. During the last hours of the summer transfer window, the Catalans offloaded Antoine Griezmann to Atletico Madrid signed Luuk de Jong on loan while registering Yusuf Demir and Oscar Mingueza to the first team.

Today seems to be a replica of the same, especially given Ousmane Dembele’s situation. The winger was linked with a move to Paris Saint Germain in the last 24 hours, with the French outfit offering players like Dina Edimbe and Abdou Diallo to Barcelona in a swap deal.

That offer without the involvement of any money, is obviously not lucrative enough for the Blaugranes. ABC Deportes say that Chelsea entered a last-minute swoop to sign Dembele and the transfer is ‘99% completed’.

Thomas Tuchel has previously coached the French winger with Borussia Dortmund and hinted over a potential move, saying that their working relationship “ended too early”.
