It was Ferran Torres who made a fairly big money move from Manchester City to Barcelona who joked that he would not mind kidnapping his team-mate, Ousmane Dembele to ensure he stays at Barcelona. This statement is occasioned by the very impressive performances Dembele keeps churning out. However, Torres resigned to the fact that he is not in Dembele's head and admitted,"It's his[Dembele's] decision" and wished for him the best in whatever he decides.
