£97m French Star To Snub Chelsea Approach In Order To Complete Dream Man Utd Move
Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is ready to snub interest from Chelsea in order to complete a dream move to Manchester United this summer
The transfer window may be closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Ousmane Dembele…
Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is ready to snub interest from Chelsea in order to complete a dream move to Manchester United this summer, according to a report by TeamTalk.
Dembele was considered to be one of the most exciting young attackers in Europe during his time at Borussia Dortmund which earned him a £97m move to Barcelona last summer.
However, the 20-year-old has endured a tough first season at the Nou Camp as he missed a large part of the campaign with a hamstring injury and has struggled to force his way back in to the starting eleven since regaining full fitness.
Dembele has started just 8 La Liga games so far this season and it’s led to speculation he’s already eyeing a fresh start this summer after becoming increasingly unsettled in Spain with Barca ready to offload the Frenchman if they land Antoine Griezmann.
A move to the Premier League has been mooted with TeamTalk claiming that Chelsea and United have enquired about Dembele while Bayern Munich and PSG have also reportedly expressed their interest.
Chelsea are expected to strengthen their squad this summer following a disappointing campaign and Dembele could be viewed as a replacement for Willian with the Brazilian international’s future at Stamford Bridge in doubt.
However, TeamTalk are citing a report from Don Balon that claims Dembele is ready to snub Chelsea in favour of a move to Old Trafford as he’s long dreamed of playing for Man Utd.
The Spanish publication says the young attacker is ready to play for Jose Mourinho and would accept a move to United if a deal could be agreed with Barcelona this summer.
Mourinho had previously hinted that he wasn’t looking to strengthen his attacking options this summer but those plans may have changed amid reports that Anthony Martial is looking for a move away from the club.
If United could secure a deal for Dembele then it would pave the way for Martial’s departure with Juventus strongly linked with a move for the French international attacker.
We’ll have to wait and see how things develop but United will have to be prepared to dig deep if they want to sign Dembele as TeamTalk suggests Barca will want close to the £97m they paid last summer.
