Barcelona have decided against using Ousmane Dembele as a makeweight to lure one of Willian or Eden Hazard from Chelsea this summer.

The Blaugrana have expressed a keen interest in both Willian and Hazard this summer and reports have previously suggested that they could sacrifice Dembele to loosen the Blues' hold on their leading attackers.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the Blaugrana have no plans to offload Dembele during the ongoing transfer window and they are optimistic that the Frenchman can fare better next term after overcoming his muscular problems.

Dembele is presently on a vacation after France's World Cup final triumph in Russia but he is expected to report for first-team duty before the start of the new league campaign.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have made a final take-or-leave offer worth £65m for Willian and the Blues now need to decide whether they would be willing to part ways with the Brazil international.
