Manchester United has increased its interest in Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele. As per the report by Sports Claim, the Red Devils are considering a move in the transfer window.
Manchester United was trying to sign a winger last summer. They were interested in Borussia Dortmund’s winger Jadon Sancho. But they failed to sign as they cannot match the asking price for the English winger.
After that, they tried to sign FC Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembélé on loan. But FC Barcelona wanted a permanent deal only for the French winger. Finally, Manchester United ended up signing Facundo Pelistri and Amad Diallo.
However, Ousmane Dembélé is in good form recently whenever he got the chance to play. He has appeared only 35 times this season and has scored 9 goals and provided 4 assists already.
As a result, multiple clubs in Europe want to get the service of the Frenchman. Manchester United is surely one of them. Dembele has only left 15 months of his contract. His contract will end in 2022. Dembélé did not want to renew his contract with FC Barcelona. The Catalan side is also yet to make any progress in the contract negotiations.
As per the report, FC Barcelona is not interested to match the wage bill of the player. It can surely open the door for Manchester United to get their target man.
