BBC Sport pundit Tam McManus believes that Moussa Dembele will very likely to leave Celtic at the end of the season after putting himself in the shop window against Paris Saint-Germain.
Dembele, 21, fired Celtic into a shock lead inside one minute at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night but couldn’t help his side falling to defeat as PSG responded emphatically to win 7-1.
The Frenchman has been widely linked with a move away from Celtic Park after a stunning start to life in Scotland after he was brought in by Brendan Rodgers from Fulham last season.
The powerful striker spent most of the early weeks of the current campaign sidelined with a hamstring injury, but since returning to full fitness he has been a force to be reckoned with.
He has now netted seven goals in 14 matches across all competitions after the defeat in Paris.
Now, McManus believes that sort of form is what is going to see him exit Parkhead next summer and his performance at the Parc des Princes will see his value shoot up.
“That goal has just added a few million onto Dembele’s price tag when he departs, probably in the summer. This is the stage that gets you the big money move and bagging against PSG will attract a lot of attention,” he said on his personal Twitter account during Wednesday night’s game in France.

Dembele is arguably yet to reach the heights he got to last season after what has been a long struggle for fitness in 2017.
Last term, the ex-Fulham ace scored a staggering 32 goals in 49 appearances across all competitions.
Two of them came in a 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League, and if that brace didn’t attract potential suitors, it seems that bagging against PSG will definitely turn heads according to McManus.
