Ousmane Dembele has been unveiled in front of almost 18,000 fans at the Camp Nou after completing his move from Dortmund to Barcelona.

The Frenchman was signed for £97m and has inked a bumper five-year deal.

The Blaugrana have showered their social channels with #DembeleDay content, raising morale after Neymar’s departure.

Dembele’s buy-out clause is set at a monster £369m and a debut could take place against Espanyol on September 9.

Now the second most expensive player of all time, after Neymar’s £199m move to Paris Saint-Germain, Dembele will have big pressure to replace the Brazilian.

The 20-year-old spoke of his pride after signing his contract alongside Josep Bartomeu.

“I’m really pleased to form part of the Barca family. I have always wanted to play for Barca since I was a kid. I watched all their matches,” Dembele said.

“Visca Barca, visca Catalunya.”
