The arrival of Griezmann and the possible signing of Neymar put in the ramp of exit to Dembélé and Coutinho, but according to Bartomeu both could finish remaining. The president confirmed that the Barcelona has both for the next season
The FC Barcelona did an important bet by Philippe Coutinho and by Ousmane Dembélé in the season 2017-2018. The French arrived in the market of signings of summer to occupy the empty that left Neymar Jr. The Brazilian left to Paris Saint-Germain by 222 million euros, his clause of rescission, and left to the Barça without star and with an enormous gap in the forward.
The club bent by Dembélé to substitute to the now '10' of the PSG and paid 105 millions by him to the Borussia Dortmund. A very high price by a promise that was called to be one of the big dominadores of the world-wide football, but that in this moment did not leave to be a good player with potential and a lot of future.
In the market of winter, the culés brought to Coutinho after a negotiation complicated that it could not close in summer and that it had to await until January. The Liverpool accepted to sell to his big star by 140 millions and the Brazilian at last arrived to the Camp Nou to try carry to the highest to the FC Barcelona.
Two years afterwards can say that any of the two bets has given still his fruits and therefore it has spoken of the possibility that both abandon the entity barcelonista. The Barcelona want to Griezmann and to Neymar and to be able to have to both has said that they would have to give off of Coutinho or of Dembélé, or even of the two.
But Bartomeu does not see it like this and in the press conference that summoned this Friday left very clear that follows having the Frenchman and the mediapunta and that expects that they follow improving for the next season. "The club did a bet by Coutinho and Dembélé and are two fundamental players. We did a very important bet by them. Ojalá Go back with win", confirmed the president of the Barça.
Dembélé Or Coutinho would have to go out
To do gap to Griezmann, is possible that one of the two have to go out. The forward of the Athletic of Madrid goes to put to bed 120 million euros and to be able to pay the traspaso and the almost 20 million euros of his wage, the Barcelona could see forced to sell to Dembélé or Coutinho. Bartomeu does not seem to be very by the work, but the information that has gone out in the media aims to the contrary.
