Dortmund 11/2 to win Bundesliga

However, with rumours still swirling, the youngster has now moved to squash the speculation and confirm that he’s happy with the Bundesliga side. 

“To be honest, this speculation doesn’t interest me at all,” he said. “I like being here in Dortmund and I decided to join Dortmund after my time at Rennes consciously.”

Dembele is also pleased that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be staying with the club, saying that the Bundesliga’s leading scorer from last season is like family to him. 

“I’m happy that he will continue playing for us,” he continued. “He’s like a brother to me.”
