And the Magpies have seemingly made their move for Dembele, as journalist Rudy Galetti reports a mind-boggling contract proposal has been tabled.

It would have to be some offer though, as Marca claim Dembele’s agent is demanding £485,000-A-WEEK for his client to sign a new deal at Barcelona.

And that’s with an extra £12.5million in agent fees and a £25m signing bonus on top.

That figure is ‘out of the possibilityfor cash-strapped Barca, who had been hoping to die Dembele down to a new contract on a lower wage than he currently earns.

But tense talks between the two parties hit a stumbling block and it’s reported that Dembele rejected Barca’s offer of a new deal.

The Frenchman’s representatives have always preferred him to leave Barcelona in order to cash in on a hefty commission fee.
