Besides the transfer fee of Ousmane, Dembele injury history at Barcelona is the highest number injuries any players ever had in 5 years.
The 5 times UCL winning team must have been fed up of Ousmane’s injury and that has been one of their reason for wanting to sell him this season
Since Barcelona signed Dembele in the summer of the 2016/17 season, Ousmane Dembele Injury has been the major headache for the club. The player has missed more than 100 games in 5 years at the club.
Barca signed then 20-year-old young talent for a whopping amount of breaking their bank £97m plus £38m in add ons, but it all went south. He was the second most expensive player in the world after Neymar. But, it has been like putting water in sands as Dembele Injury record is nearly going to hit quintuple hattricks.
