Manchester United’s failure to lure a right winger last summer has not really hurt them this season but they do need a proven quality attacker to challenge Man City for the title next term.
According to reports going on in the media, the Red Devils are interested in hiring the services of Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona.
As per Calcio Mercato, Man Utd are in the front row to sign the French international, whose current contract at the Nou Camp will expire at the end of the next campaign.
The Italian news outlet have mentioned that the Old Trafford outfit face competition from the likes of Juventus, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain for the attacker, who is valued at 50 million euros.
The £200,000-a-week playmaker (Marca) can effectively be deployed on either flank, moreover, he can also play as a central attacking midfielder and even as a center forward if needed.
Dembele proved his worth in Germany with Borussia Dortmund and he has consistently performed well for Barca this season under Ronald Koeman. The only major concern is that he has spent a lot of time on the treatment table since moving to Spain in 2017.
The Les Bleus star featured only for a couple of minutes last night as the Catalan giants defeated Bilbao to lift the Copa Del Rey trophy. Overall, he has netted 10 goals and provided 4 assists so far in the current campaign.
Man Utd do have a top quality left winger in the form of Rashford and they also have a world class CAM in the form of Fernandes. However, the Reds need long term solutions for the right wing and center forward roles.
In your view, should Solskjaer spend 50 million euros to sign Ousmane Dembele in the summer?
