Manchester United In Talks With Barcelona Over Transfer Of Ousmane Dembele

Manchester United In Talks With Barcelona Over Transfer Of Ousmane Dembele

Manchester United are in talks with Barcelona over a move for Ousmane Dembele, with the Premier League side proposing a season-long loan move for the French international, according to reports.

It has been a far from active transfer window at Old Trafford this summer.

Despite ongoing rumours over moves for a host of players, Donny van de Beek is the only player to have come through the doors.

Last month, it emerged that United had entered into 'advanced negotiations' with Borussia Dortmund over a move for the highly-rated Jadon Sancho, with a £90 million fee being touted.

Dortmund, however, have since insisted there is 'no chance' the player will leave the club this summer, with the Bundesliga side reportedly saying it is 'set in stone' that Sancho doesn't leave Germany this summer.

It is clear that United need to strengthen in wide areas and, with a deal for Sancho now looking more and more unlikely, it appears the club are now looking elsewhere, with Barcelona winger Dembele the latest player to be linked.

United have proposed a season-long loan deal for Dembele, according to Record Sport, who claim the La Liga side would rather have a sale of €100million.

The report goes on to state that senior Old Trafford officials, including executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, have already spoken to Barcelona about the 'viability' of a move.

It is believed, however, that the Catalan giants would only let him leave if an obligatory purchase option is included.

Ousmane Dembele Will Stay At Barcelona Despite Manchester United Interest

published at25 days ago

Dembele, who has struggled to maintain a regular place in Barcelona's first team since arriving from Borussia Dortmund for €105 million in the summer of 2017, has been plagued with injuries during his time at the Camp Nou.

The 23-year-old made just nine appearances for the Spanish giants last season after a serious hamstring injury ruled him out for six months.

He also was ruled out at the start of the 2019/20 season through muscle tears.

As you can see in the graphic below, Dembele has been incredibly unlucky when it comes to lay-offs in recent years.

Do you think Dembele is the right fit for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his United side?
