24-year-old now left out of match day squad after claims Chelsea have made an approach to sign him

Ousmane Dembele has seemingly taken another massive step toward leaving Barcelona and potentially joining Chelsea.

Earlier today, the Spanish side revealed the 22-man squad who will take on Athletico Bilbao in the Copa del Rey round of 16 this evening.

New signing Ferran Torres made the cut, but Dembele’s name did not appear on the list.

Why has Dembele been left out?

This exclusion arrives less than 24 hours after Xavi admitted he had become tired of the Frenchman’s contractual situation.
