Man Utd, Newcastle rethink Dembele plans as Barcelona coach Xavi 'speechless' over contract demands

Manchester United and Newcastle may pull out of plans to bring Ousmane Dembele to England.

Barcelona boss Xavi was left ‘speechless’ after Dembele demanded £700,000-a-week to sign a new deal.

That is according to Sky Deutschland reporter Florian Plettenburg, who claims Dembele made that request amid links with Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Newcastle and Arsenal.

The forward is out of contract at the end of the season and can negotiate with clubs outside of Spain this month.

But Barca remain hopeful they can convince the France international to extend his stay at the Nou Camp.
