Ousmane Dembele will not budge on his new contract demands in talks with Barcelona.
And if Barca refuse to meet his wishes, the France attacker will run down his deal and target a move to England this summer.
Santi Ovalle, reporting on Carrusel Deportivo, says Dembele has made it clear to Barca that he won’t drop his current demands to renew.
While Barca would seek to sell this month, Dembele is prepared to sit out the season and leave for nothing in June – with the Premier League his favoured destination.
Newcastle and Manchester United are in contact with Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, while Chelsea have also come forward in the past week.
