Speaking to Betfair, former Barcelona star Rivaldo admitted he feels it’s time for the Catalan club to sell French winger Ousmane Dembélé.
“Dembélé signed for Barcelona almost three years ago. He has had time to settle in at the club and show his quality. It’s possible that he will never be able to do it. He’s a player with great potential but I think this summer is the right time to sell him or use him as part of a swap-deal.”
Dembélé’s French compatriot Antoine Griezmann has had a difficult start to life with his new club, however Rivaldo believes Barcelona will stand by the former Atletico Madrid striker. “Barça will give Griezmann more time to show what he can do, they need to be patient with him.”
