The Reds are adamant they will not sell, so Ernesto Valverede's side may now focus more on their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund ace, Ousmane Dembele.

The rebellious Frenchman looks destined to don the famous shirt come the end of the window, with Peter Bosz's side admitting they will sell for the right price.

However, the way in which Barca have pursued the former Rennes man has been the subject of much scrutiny.

Tapping up and forcing the 20-year-old to not go to training are just some of the things associated with the saga and one man is particularly angry with the ordeal.

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness is livid with the way the Catalans have treated their bitter rivals and the German launched a scathing attack on the Blaugrana.


"A player to not appear to the training - this is the lowest class," he said on Eurosport, per BILD.

"And if there really is Barcelona behind it, then I have no respect for this club.

Hoeness then explained how he would treat a player in his side if he acted in a similar manner to Dembele.


"If a player would do something like this, he would be punished with a penalty of 100,000 euros a day."

The Bayern president then finished by saying that there will only be one winner come the end of the saga.

"If Dortmund gets 120, 130 or 150 million euros of pain, then Dortmund is the winner and not the player. It can not be that the player determines the prize. "
