Transfer: Man Utd agree contract with £190,000-a-week star, who’s keen to secure OT move – Report

The Spanish outlet have claimed that even Arsenal are looking to lure the former Borussia Dortmund attacker and both clubs are carefully observing the player’s injury record.

The Les Bleus attacker was a superstar in the German Bundesliga and Barcelona splashed the cash to sign him in 2017 in order to replace Neymar, who left the Nou Campto join Paris Saint-Germain.

In the 2016-17 campaign, Dembele, who can effectively play on the flanks and even as a central attacking midfielder, scored 10 goals and provided no fewer than 21 assists for Dortmund.

Unfortunately, with the Catalan giants, the World Cup winner has spent a lot of time out injured. Even this term, he only started three league games before COVID-19 outbreak and spent most of his time on the treatment table due to hamstring concerns.

The 22-year-old playmaker is pacy and has brilliant dribbling skills as well but without doubt, his injury record is scary. That is why, Man Utd and the Gunners are analyzing whether pure bad luck is behind such a record or are Barcelona’s training methods responsible (Sport).

Sport have also mentioned that the former Rennes star has contacted Anthony Martial to ask about what it feels to play for Manchester United. His current contract with the Spanish champions will expire in 2022 and he is valued (AS) at around 80 million euros (£70million).

In your view, should Man Utd move to sign Ousmane Dembele?


  1. i don’t think manu
    should sign him
    we have martial there and also
    lets sign harry kane instead

  2. He is a fantastic player but with bad injury records. Man United needs a player that can they can count on when needed and I don’t see him as one. Because of his medical condition which makes him unfit.
