Ousmane Dembele showed up late for Barcelona training barely 24 hours after kicking off their La Liga campaign on an impressive note.
The Frenchman's attitude has continued to spark up suggestions that he could be on his way to Manchester United before the transfer window closes.
Dembele came in as a substitute for two goals hero Ansu Fati in the 70th minute of his side's 4-0 victory over Villarreal at the Nou Camp.

The former Borussia Dortmund star arrived at the Catalans training ground at 10.15 am - 45 minutes behind resumption time according to The Mirror citing Spanish publication AS.
This is not the first time the France international will be reporting to training, as he had one time arrived two hours behind schedule for a session in 2018.
However, Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping he can lure the player to Old Trafford before the transfer window shuts on October 5.
Dembele's reign at Camp Nou has been seriously marred by a series of injuries, and Barcelona are prepared to let him go in the near future.
United are hoping they can land the attacker having failed to secure Jadon Sancho's signature.
The Catalans have already offloaded some big players to cut down on their wage bill due to the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona have abandoned their chase for the Argentine superstar, Lautaro Martinez this window.
The Inter Milan attacker has been on the radar of the Catalan club all through this year but the La Liga outfit is unable to meet the £90 million price his club demanded.
Martinez whose current contract with the Serie A team expires in 2023 scored 21 goals and seven assists in 49 appearances last term.
