Barcelona have completed the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for an initial fee of €105m.

The 20-year-old has signed a five-year-contract with the Spanish giants and is seen as a replacement for Neymar jnr who departed the club to join Paris Saint-Germain in a world record deal.

Even at his tender age Dembele is a fully fledged French international and joins his countrymen Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Digne at Barca.

The 20-year-old sealed his dream move to the Catalan side after the clubs reached an agreement, making him the second most expensive player in history

The €222m received from Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar sparked the Liga side's pursuit of Dembele and Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho in the close season, but they saw bids for each rejected.

While Liverpool have stood firm on their insistence that Coutinho is not for sale, Dortmund have surrendered to Dembele's wishes and allowed him to leave.

The France international had made clear his desire to join Ernesto Valverde's side by skipping training, resulting in him being indefinitely suspended by Dortmund.

Dembele spent just one season in Germany after joining from Rennes for €15m in July 2016, scoring 10 goals in 50 games in all competitions for BVB.

He will arrive in Spain over the weekend to undergo a medical and sign his contract ahead of his official unveiling at Camp Nou on Monday.

He is the fifth signing Barca have made in the current window, joining Marlon, Nelson Semedo, Paulinho and Gerard Deulofeu in moving to Camp Nou.

My opinion: The buy out clause is over the top, five years is nothing. he should Just ride out the contract and leave as a free agent if he wants to move to another club!
