Barcelona have completed the signing of 20-year-old Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund in a deal potentially worth €147 million.
Goal revealed on Thursday that the French attacker was on his way to Camp Nou on a five-year contract after the sides reached an agreement.
Barca have confirmed a €105m initial fee for Dembele, with Dortmund to receive a further €42m in bonuses. The forward’s release clause has been set at €400m.
While Liverpool have stood firm on their insistence that Coutinho is not for sale, Dortmund have surrendered to Dembele’s wishes and allowed him to leave.
Dembele had made clear his desire to join the Catalan giants by skipping training, resulting in him being indefinitely suspended by Dortmund.
