Paris Saint-Germain are well aware that Ousmane Dembele's dream is to remain with Barcelona, with manager Thomas Tuchel learning of his Camp Nou ambitions during their shared time at Borussia Dortmund.
With Neymar heavily linked with a move to Barcelona this summer, it has been rumoured that Dembele could move in the opposite direction in a player-plus-cash deal.
PSG boss Tuchel was the one to sign Dembele for Borussia Dortmund in 2016, and the winger is believed to have admitted to Tuchel that his plan was always to use the club as a stepping stone to move to Barcelona.
With Neymar then leaving in 2017, Barcelona offered to make Dembele a core part of their team, and the Frenchman leaped at the opportunity.
Now leading PSG, Tuchel believes that signing Dembele would be an almost impossible task, even if Barcelona do re-sign Neymar, as he is so desperate to make it at Camp Nou.
The 22-year-old is incredibly happy in Barcelona, and being surrounded by the French group of Antoine Griezmann, Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti and Jean-Clair Todibo is thought to be keeping Dembele in high spirits.
Last season he made 42 appearances for Barcelona, racking up 14 goals and nine assists in all competitions. The arrival of Griezmann could certainly impact his minutes, but it appears as though Dembele is ready to fight to prove himself.
