Fans notice Ousmane Dembele’s bizarre Twitter activity
The 21-year-old endured a very difficult first season with injury and a lack of form inhibiting his debut campaign.
Dembele has not returned to pre-season training as he is still on his break following France’s World Cup victory on July 15.
The Frenchman also liked a tweet which said he did not have a ‘good attitude’.
One Twitter user wrote: ‘Dembele liking hatred tweets of barca fans against him… he is clearly finding a way out!’
‘There are also tweets comparing his attitude to Neymar and saying that Malcom will take his place.’
Barcelona paid €70million for Dembele last summer in the first instalment of his potentially eye-watering €145m final fee. They then paid a further €35m at the start of July.
The remaining €40m is payable in instalments and according to the games the French winger plays. The sum of €20m will be paid in four payments of €5m for each time he plays 25 matches in La Liga.
The remaining €20m is tied to his Champions League participation. Every season he competes in the competition they will receive €5m up to €10m in total. And every time he wins the competition they will also pay a further €5m – again a maximum of two times.
