With another fresh blow for summer import Ousmane Dembele, the estimation of the French international decrease with each tortuous moment as the signing debilitates to wind up plainly one of the most exceedingly worst transfer investment in the history of Barcelona.
The new injury setback for the 20-year-old has caused extraordinary worry at the Camp Nou. Exactly when the French attacker was beginning to get into the swing of things, he suffered a hamstring injury in his left leg which could leave him sidelined for over to a month.
However, the Catalan club has adapted well in Dembele’s absence, stretching out their unbeaten streak to 29 games after they extinguish the Anoeta ghost with a 4-2 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.
In any case, it has put into question whether the board were on the right track to sign him from Borussia Dortmund in the first place, particularly given how much was spent to lure him to Camp Nou. The total transfer added up to €105m in advance with a further €40m in additional bonuses which could all go to waste if the Frenchman barely feature for the Cules”.
Up until now, Dembele has just played 263 minutes for Ernesto Valverde’s side with just seven appearances, which implies that his cost-per-minute adds up to €551,133 with an additional four-week lay-off set to keep up that high figure.
