Manchester United are consistently linked with French international, Ousmane Dembele, and we have another update coming from Spain today.
Last week, Sport reported that the Red Devils, who wanted to lure the Barcelona star last year, are pressing hard to finally hire his services.

Today, the Spanish news source have mentioned (press image provided below) that the Catalan club are running out of patience with the Les Bleus attacker, who is yet to accept the contract renewal offered to him.
Sport claim that internally, the 24-year-old star has assured that he wants to stay at the Nou Camp, however, Barca have first-hand information that his representative is in contact with Manchester United, who want to bring him to Old Trafford.
Dembele will be out of contract in less than 9 months and if he does sign a new deal then it is stated that he would be sold in the winter transfer window, just like Ilaix Moriba was sold to Leipzig to ensure that he does not leave for free.
The former Rennes man earns around £195,000 a week (Marca) and Barca do not have the financial stability to offer him a pay rise. The Catalan media outlet have claimed that if he leaves on a bosman then he can get his salary doubled in the Premier League and in the Serie A.
Dembele is a quality winger but the main conundrum is that he has been highly injury prone. Moreover, after spending a lot of cash to reinforce the offense in the summer, Solskjaer really does not need another attacker.
In your view, should Man Utd move to sign the World Cup-winning star from Barcelona?
