The Catalan giants are lining up replacements for Neymar who last week joined Neymar

The Catalan giants are lining up replacements for Neymar who last week joined Neymar

The striker went AWOL on the eve of the Bundesliga start as he tries to force through a move to the Nou Camp as part of the Neymar replacement project.

However, just hours later Dortmund released a statement clarifying their position - they would not sell Dembele for such a fee and that they had suspended and fined the France worldwide for breaching club rules in not turning up for compulsory training sessions.

"Hans-Joachim Watzke, Michael Zorc and Peter Bosz were together on the first day of the first round of the 1".

Dortmund confirmed a bid for the 20-year-old from Barca had been rejected and that a transfer did not seem likely, before announcing the forward would be suspended for their DFB-Pokal clash against Rielasingen-Arlen on Saturday.

"Borussia Dortmund will not make any further comment at this stage".

The 20-year-old France global was fined and suspended until Monday for missing Thursday's training, but the ban has been extended indefinitely.

"Our focus is now on preparing the team for their Bundesliga opener against Wolfsburg next weekend. Dembele, of course, has the opportunity to complete an individual training session outside the group".

Catalan broadcaster RAC1 has reported that Real Madrid could enter the race for Dembele, while German publication kicker said on Sunday that Barca had yet to register a new bid.

Dembele scored 10 goals and supplied 21 assists in 49 games for Dortmund in his debut season with the club, having signed from Rennes for EUR15m previous year.

But his impressive performances - he scored six goals and provided 12 assists - have made him one of the hottest young properties in Europe.
