Ousmane Dembele is a talented attacker but since moving to Barcelona, he has spent a lot of time on the treatment table.
According to Sport (press image provided below), the French international returned from a major injury during the summer and the Catalan giants wanted to offload him. It is stated that they offered him on loan to Man Utd with an option to buy. However, the deal collapsed right at the end.
The renowned Spanish source claim that Koeman is happy with the performances of the 23-year-old this season but Barca face a dilemma with his contract expiring in the summer of 2022.
The La Liga giants want to sign a new contract with Dembele but talks are paralyzed and he could be sold. In such a scenario, Sport claim that Man Utd could launch attack to finally sign the Les Bleus star.
The World Cup winning attacker is a versatile talent, who can effectively play on either flank and even as a central attacking midfielder if needed.
With Dortmund, he excelled in the No.10 role and then moved to Barca to replace Neymar. Unfortunately, due to consistent injury concerns, the 5-time European Champions have not been able to get the best out of him.
As far as this season is concerned, the former Rennes playmaker has mostly remained fit (missed 5 games due to hamstring injury). In all competitions, he has so far scored 6 goals and provided 3 assists under the management of Koeman.
In the summer, Man Utd mainly wanted to sign the £215,000-a-week star (The Sun) after failing to lure Jadon Sancho from Dortmund. The Frenchman can be deployed in the right wing position at Old Trafford and if he remains fit, he could be a top signing for Solskjaer.
In your opinion, should Ole move in to sign Ousmane Dembele this month?
