It is quite pleasing though to see how humble and grounded Dembele is in the face of potential transfers to such large football clubs. He spoke to French TV outlet Telefoot After:
“My entourage are keen for me to stay grounded so I pay attention without worrying too much about what is said about me,” Dembele said.
“In the UK football is a way a life and a religion; it is mad, regardless of in which division the club is.”
