Barcelona Duo Extremely Low Odds To Depart In January
Ousmane Dembele and Malcom have both been linked with moves away from the Nou Camp and the pair are almost even money to have left by the time the January transfer window shuts.
Brazilian Malcom, who burst into tears after scoring his first goal for the Catalan side in the Champions League on Tuesday, and Dembele, who has five goals in all competitions this term, are just 11/10 with Paddy Power to no longer be Barca players come February 1st.
Malcom switched Bordeaux for Barcelona in the summer and has only made four appearances so far this season, sparking rumours he might be looking for a move elsewhere.
However, the 21-year-old claims rumours of him leaving the club are 'fake reports,' saying: "They are false reports that won't break my confidence but scoring a goal for Barcelona after that was important for my confidence and I am sure that I can help Barcelona much more."
While Dembele is expected to leave the club as his bad attitude is said to have annoyed senior members of the squad and according to Mundo Deportivo the World Cup winner skipped training yesterday and was untraceable for 90 minutes as staff tried to locate him.

The forward's diet has also been criticized and it is believed he has given up his Spanish lessons creating a divide between him and other members of the squad.
It was also reported that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez approached Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde to urge him to start playing Rafinha over the Frenchman.
Both have been linked with moves to the Premier League as Liverpool are reported to be keeping an eye on Malcom, while Arsenal are believed to have bid for Dembele in the summer.
