He is officially the most expensive player the club have ever signed, but the price tag doesn’t look to make any difference to him.
I’m not under pressure. The transfer market is a little crazy, but I’m here to do my job well on the pitch and I’m not thinking about this sort of thing
Ousmane Dembele, Barcelona’s newest signing and most expensive ever, told reporters in his official presentation.
I’m excited to play with the best. My goal is to learn from the best, from Messi, from Suarez, and to win as many trophies as possible. It’s an honour, a pleasure to be able to play on a team with Messi. I want to see what he’s doing, he’s the best in the world, the best in history
the young Frenchman then said, looking eager to train and play next to whom he clearly considers an idol.
As for… replacing Neymar, the France international was quick to point out the difference between him and PSG’s new star.
It’s not extra pressure to replace Neymar. Of course, he is an excellent player but I’m young, I’m coming from my second season as a professional and I’m trying to grow. Barca needed a player in this position and they called me. But I come here to learn
Dembele said. According to reports, Barcelona spent €105 million to sign him from Dortmund, a number that could rise to €147 million if the former Borussia winger meets certain targets.
