"Dembele wasn't at training today".

Dembele, who has made no secret of his desire to play for Barcelona, failed to show up for practice on Thursday.

Dortmund head coach Peter Bosz earlier said the club had been unable to contact the player.

Just hours after Dortmund manager Peter Bosz confirmed that the 20-year-old did not show up for training today, the club have confirmed that "a transfer to Barcelona is not now likely".

Barcelona is scrambling to find a replacement for Brazilian sensation Neymar, who last week left for Paris-Saint Germain for a record-breaking transfer fee of 222 million euros.

Opposition lawmaker Delsa Solorzano says the objective of the truth commission is to "persecute those who think differently". Washington has already imposed financial sanctions, direct to the head of the State, a measure that's extremely rare.

Dortmund also say that it is "not now likely" that they will let Dembele depart.

Aarons also detailed how talks between Dortmund and Barca about a possible deal have been gathering pace, but the German club want at least €150 million for Dembele.

"Ousmane Dembele today missed the BVB-training-session without any excuse", a club statement read.

"Liverpool is not a club that needs to sell".

"As there is no other offer from FC Barcelona until now, the transfer of Dembele to Barcelona isn't likely".

European states bid to host UK-based EU bodies
He said that the Government is confident that the Irish bid to host the EMA "fully meets all the stated criteria". According to a statement from the European Commission , Hungary did not submit a bid for the two institutions.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season.

Dortmund only signed Dembele from Rennes last summer for €15m and the Frenchman has impressed in his debut season in the Bundesliga.

"He wasn't there this morning and if I am completely honest I have to say that I have no idea why he wasn't", said Bosz.

Barcelona have been told they will have to pay £130m to secure the signing of Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele.

Rory McIlroy SACKS caddie JP Fitzgerald to end nine-year relationship
Fitzgerald's words clearly helped as McIlroy bounced back from an opening round 71 to shoot 68-69-67 over the next three days. Fitzgerald, after all, is now McIlroy's former caddie, or apparently so if a claim about his sacking proves to be correct.
