Real Madrid to challenge Barcelona's €140m bid for forward

La Liga By: Uche Duru | 12/08/2017

Barcelona is currently in a complete muddle after losing one of their biggest stars, the heir to Messi-Ronaldo throne to PSG.

The matter in question at the moment is that Barcelona made a lot of money from Neymar transfer and clubs whom they are seeking replacements are aware of that fact and have increased the price of their players. That is pure capitalism in the football economy!

This goes a long way in explaining why Barcelona were ready to spend €140 million on Borussia Dortmund's rather sensational wide forward Ousmane Dembele, as per reports in AS.

Meanwhile, the Spanish newspaper, have come up with another twist to the story. Real Madrid are all set to spoil Barcelona's best laid out plans and are apparently in touch with Borussia Dortmund over potentially obtaining the services of the exciting young Frenchman.

And this is coming after news made rounds that PSG pipped Real Madrid to their key target, Kylian Mbape which might have prompted them to shift their attention to the 20-year old Frenchman.
