The verdict: ideal signature?
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel marks Dembele ‘a bit crazy’ and an ‘incredible player’, certainly underlines that the Â£ 45million man has capacity bags.
Barca have agreed to a Â£ 96.8million first move to sign the striker in a deal worth up to Â£ 135.5million (BBC), confirming how well it was rated at the time, but a plethora of injury issues have since followed despite periods of good form.
