Manchester United are once again linked with Ousmane Dembele and reports suggest that they are positioning to secure his signing in the January transfer window.
The Red Devils were interested in luring the French international late in the summer transfer window but the player decided to stay put. Now, his future is up in the air again.
Barcelona splashed a lot of cash to hire his services in 2017 in order to replace Neymar. However, the Les Bleus attacked has been highly injury prone since moving to the Nou Camp.
Last season, he missed most part of the campaign due to consistent muscle concerns and managed to start just 6 games for the Catalan giants in all competitions.
Dembele is still 23 and his contract with Barca will expire in 2022, therefore, Mundo Deportivo claim that the Spaniards are trying to agree a new deal with him. Ronald Koeman even opted to hand him the captain’s armband in the last CL contest vs Ferencvarosi.
The former Borussia Dortmund player did not disappoint as he netted a goal and provided an assist to help his team earn all three points.
MD claim that Barca have held talks with Dembele’s representative for renewal but at the same time Man United have made contact as well and they are positioning themselves to secure the signature of the player in January.
The good thing is that the £215,000-a-week star (The Sun) has remained fit this season and his performances have been good as well. So far, in 6 starts in all competitions, he has directly contributed in as many goals (4 goals and 2 assists).
Man United were unable to lure a right winger in the summer and they must move to sign one in the winter transfer window. In your opinion, should they make an offer for Ousmane Dembele?
