    Barcelona are also said to be keen on his return after they struggle to fill the void he left with the club key members also keen on his return.

    Barcelona brought in French winger Ousmane Dembele from Borusia Dortmund for a fee in the  region of €115m but the 22 year old has failed to impress as he struggled with fitness issues , six months later ,  the Catalan heavyweight brought in Phillipe Coutinho from Liverpool but the Brazilian international also fail to adapt to the Braugrana style of play which leads to him linked with a move away from the La Liga champions .
