Manchester United are struggling in the Premier League after terrible performances under Mourinho and it will be interesting to see whether Solskjaer can turn things around or not.
As far as the latest transfer rumors are concerned, a quality French playmaker in the form of Ousmane Dembele is linked with the Old Trafford club but not for the winter transfer window.
According to Don Balon, the former Borussia Dortmund attacker has his eyes on leaving Barcelona in the summer and he wants to sign for Manchester United to work under Zidane. As per the report, Zizou has an offer on the table to become the head coach of the Red Devils and the French boss wants Dembele in his team.
The Spanish source have stated that Dembele would fit in well in English football and this deal could be closed for a fee of 100 million euros (£90million).
The 21-year-old star could be deployed on either flank. He is fast, has no weak foot and can dribble brilliantly as well. In all honesty, Dembele is clearly better than the current crop of Man United playmakers and must be lured.
However, the main concern is that United need to sign quality stars like Dembele in January to have any chance of qualifying for the next season’s Champions League.
Interim boss, Solskjaer, has got to strengthen his squad in the upcoming transfer window and I think, a top center half and a world class playmaker must be signed.
I’d love to have Dembele this winter but Barcelona are one of the favorites to win the Champions League and they are leading the La Liga table. So, leaving for a struggling Man United side in the middle of the season seems highly unlikely.
