Celtic are in danger of losing one of their most prized assets with Moussa Dembele’s future at the club looking increasingly uncertain.
Speaking on the Frenchman ahead of Celtic’s Europa League second leg play-off round clash versus FK Suduva tomorrow, manager Brendan Rodgers said (via STV News): “He’s not going to be here forever, that’s was always part of his plan, as it is for a lot of the European boys.
“They come in to develop at a great club and then look to move on, but it has to work both ways.
“We don’t want to lose a a top-class player without having a replacement so it’s ongoing discussions, really.”
With the likes of Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclair, Celtic have more than enough in their arsenal — or at least in comparison to the rest of the SPL — to win an eighth Scottish league title in a row.
However, losing a player of Dembele’s quality will have many questioning Celtic’s European ambitions.
Have a look at what Celtic supporters are saying on £6.3m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Dembele below…

Leaves Celtic massively open though. Peter lawell always says he wants to come out every transfer window stronger. He definitely has messed this one up though.

Did he say anything about investing any potential millions on some new players? Signing no one and losing Dembele would be a brutal window.

If Celtic sell Dembele I’m actually done

Celtic Park on Sunday 2nd September. Dembélé has left with no replacement. We have another failed bid for McKenna. Anger in the stands. Adults throwing pies at each other and boycotting paradise windfall.
