Barcelona star faces an uncertain future at Nou Camp, with rumors circulating moving to England on the cards.
Dembele's behavior on and off the field has risen eyebrows this season.
And Balague has revealed why Barcelona is considering what to do with the 21-year-old, signed for an additional £ 96m addition in summer 2017.
"Things do not go well for him in Barcelona," he said on his YouTube channel.
"His discipline is not ideal"
"His discipline is not ideal.
"He has received criticism and some of the leaders in the club such as Rakitic and Pique have been saying that 's not like that.
"It's clear that something is happening there.
"But it was late for a training session, incredible.
"And the club did not hear from him an hour and a half after he had to be in the training field."
But despite the critical attitude of the player this season, it is said that Barcelona is eager to keep Dembele in the club until the end of the season.
And they may not face a lot of opposition, as Balague claims that Liverpool has no interest in the attacker.
"Liverpool has not made any offer for Dembele," he said.
"No offer, there is really no offer.
"Liverpool is not even making a bid.
"I believe that Liverpool has no intention of bringing new players in January.
"Barcelona does not want to let him go in January either.
"They believe they can get something out of it
"They think they have the potential to make a difference as it did at the beginning of the season.
"And they'll keep it until the end of the season – then we'll see it.
"The only method of Arsenal was on loan, with an option to buy.
"That was intermediate, not directly from Arsenal /
"Yet Barcelona did not listen to it."
