Manchester United wanted to lure Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona last summer but the player decided to stay put. If reports in the media are anything to go by then the he might end up moving to Old Trafford this summer.
According to reports covered by Mundo Deportivo (news image provided below), Man Utd have moved again and they have the edge to finally sign the French playmaker this time.
Yesterday, the Spanish news source reported that the Red Devils failed to reach an agreement with the Les Bleus star last year because he did not want to leave on loan late in the market.
Now, the Old Trafford outfit have moved again to get his signing done. It is stated that Dembele is aware that he has the qualities to perform well in the Premier League and at Man Utd, he would meet a good friend in the form of compatriot Paul Pogba.
As per today’s version, MD have claimed that Man Utd have the edge to secure his signature. The renowned media outlet state that Dembele has not accepted the renewal offer made by the Catalan giants as yet. Moreover, it is mentioned that if the 24-year-old does end up leaving, his future will be in England despite interest from PSG.
The £215,000 a week playmaker (The Sun), who is naturally a winger, excelled with Borussia Dortmund in the CAM role before moving to Barca. He spent a lot of time on the treatment table in Spain but last season, he was fit and made 44 appearances under Ronald Koeman.
Currently, the former Rennes attacker is with the senior national side at the European Championships and his future will probably be decided after the tournament. Man Utd are in search of a right winger and Sancho is heavily in the lime light. In your view, who should Ole Gunnar Solksjaer sign to strengthen the RW position in the summer transfer window?
