Barcelona have been linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, but the rumors have upset one of the Catalan club's own young stars, Gavi.
Reports emerged that Barcelona were willing to offer Dembele and Gavi in exchange for Mbappe, but Gavi was reportedly left upset by the suggestion that he could be moved on.
Gavi has established himself as a key player for Barcelona since breaking into the first team last season, and he is seen as one of the brightest young talents in world football.
The 19-year-old has been assured by Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez that he is not for sale, and that he is an important part of the club's future plans.
Gavi is said to be relieved by Xavi's comments, and he is now focused on helping Barcelona challenge for trophies in the coming season.
The Catalan club are still interested in signing Mbappe, but they are unlikely to offer Gavi as part of the deal. They are more likely to offer Dembele and cash, or a player swap involving a different player.
Mbappe is one of the most sought-after players in the world, and he is likely to have his pick of clubs if he decides to leave PSG. Barcelona will have to offer him a very attractive deal if they want to sign him.
However, Gavi is a player that Barcelona are not willing to lose. He is a key part of their future plans, and they are determined to keep him at the club.
