Former Barcelona and Real Madrid player Bernd Schuster believes Barcelona is too big a club for Chelsea transfer target Ousmane Dembele.
The Frenchman has struggled to make an impact since joining Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in August 2017 and has been criticised for a number of his performances, and also for turning up late for training on a number of occasions.
That has led to a lot of speculation that we could hand boss Maurizio Sarri enough funds in the January transfer window to tempt Barcelona into letting Dembele leave, with reports the Italian is seeking a long-term replacement for Eden Hazard.
And now they will have been boosted by the club made by Schuster, who believes Dembele is too far out of his depth at Barcelona.
“There are some players who are good enough for Barcelona and some who are not, and you find that out from the start – it doesn’t take three seasons,” said Schuster on the BILD website.
“Barcelona is too big for Dembele. At Dortmund he had some great matches, but not that many.”
Is Dembele good enough for us?
Dembele got his big chance to make a big move to Barcelona and shine in a league that is not as superior to the Premier League, so if he cannot make it there, then he would struggle here at Stamford Bridge.
So even though he has potential, a move for him right now would not be the best option as he is showing us nothing to say that he could come in and make a real difference on the side, he could actually be a waste of money at the price Barca currently want.
