This week, after SportBild once again reported Dembele to Dortmund as a done deal, we contacted the player's agent looking for some clarity. Badou Sambagué told Sport Witness: “It’s only rumours. There has been no meeting and no discussions with clubs.”
It was only a matter of time, before someone managed to get quotes from Dembele himself about his future, and it seems the player is in no rush to leave Rennes.
Dembele told beIN Sports: "I do not know what will happen this summer. I have signed a three-year contract last November and I'm fine in Rennes. The transfer market rumours bother me, but we do not pay much attention. As for now, I have no agreement with any team, I don't know if I'm ready to play abroad."
Judging on comments from player and agent, Dembele is keeping his options open, and will only make a decision at the end of the season. It may well be the case that Rennes and Dortmund believe a deal will happen, but haven't quite got full agreement from Dembele yet.
