Berlin (AFP) - Borussia Dortmund will sell wantaway winger Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona if their price is met, the German club said on Saturday.

"We have a clear position and a clear idea (of the price). If this idea is met, then he will transfer this summer," Dortmund director of sport Michael Zorc told Sky before their match at Wolfsburg on the first weekend of the new Bundesliga season.

"Otherwise he will stay with us - it's as simple as that."

The 20-year-old Dembele attempted to force Dortmund into selling him to the Spanish giants by boycotting training last week, which led to him being indefinitely suspended, after Borussia rejected an initial bid.

Barcelona are eager to sign Dembele and Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho to replace Neymar, who left for Paris Saint-Germain.


Frenchman Dembele has a contract until 2021 with the German club.

Reports claim Dortmund want €130 million (S$208.45 million) for the player they paid Rennes €15 million for last year, after rejecting an initial offer of €80 million, plus a €40m bonus.
