Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele linked with Thomas Tuchel reunion at Bayern Munich
Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele could be on his way back to the Bundesliga according to a recent report.
The Frenchman endured a difficult start to life at the Camp Nou following his 2017 move from Borussia Dortmund. However, the player has earned recent plaudits for his last couple of seasons at the club, with the 25-year-old producing 24 goal contributions from his last 41 La Liga outings. Dembele recently marked his return to the team after spending three months on the sidelines with an injury.
Nevertheless, the French international has now hit the headlines, not for his performances, but rather fresh speculation over his future. Dembele's contract with Barcelona expires at the end of next season and a renewal is yet to be agreed. With the release clause set to drop to around £50million in July, Barcelona are under pressure to secure Dembele's future.
According to Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo, one club who are said to be interested in signing the player are Bayern Munich.
Current Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel worked with Dembele at Borussia Dortmund, and a reunion is not out of the question. The Bavarians are looking to secure a replacement for Sadio Mane and Dembele certainly ticks many of the boxes. During his sole season in the Bundesliga, Dembele scored six goals and made 12 assists in 32 appearances for BVB. The player was ultimately sold to Barcelona for over £100million ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
