Moussa Dembele's perfect hat-trick in the Old Firm derby last weekend rightfully grabbed a lot of headlines and also impressed scouts from Real Madrid and Barcelona, who were in attendance at Celtic Park to witness the young Frenchman's heroics.
It is being reported by Get French Football News that the El Clasico rivals are both interested in Dembele, although 'Los Blancos' are currently under a FIFA sanctioned transfer embargo until 2018 so would have to wait almost 18 months until they can make any attempt to sign the former Fulham man. This may hand Barcelona the advantage should they want to take their interest any further.

However, when Dembele faced off against Barca in the Camp Nou on Wednesday night, things didn't go quite so well, with Celtic crashing to a 7-0 defeat as the Frenchman missed a chance to equalise at 1-0, but failing to convert his penalty attempt.
Despite his failed spot-kick, the 20-year-old striker is still set to be tracked by the two La Liga giants as the season progresses.
