Since he first burst onto the scene for Stade Rennais, Dembele has showed the world exactly what he’s made of.

The Frenchman really gave fans a glimpse of what the player was about during his time with Borussia Dortmund, as the player managed to set the Bundesliga alight with his dribbling ability and lightning-quick pace.

In 50 games for the German side, Dembele managed to contribute to a total of 10 goals and 22 assists, a great record for a player of his age.

For Barca, Dembele struggled to set the world alight before his injury, with the winger only managing one assist in the three games he managed for the Blaugrana.
