Manchester United are interested in signing Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona. 

The Premier League side are looking to sign the 23 year old winger on a loan deal with an option to buy.

Dembele has already rejected a loan move to Liverpool earlier in the summer and it will be interesting to see if Manchester United can convince him to move to Old Trafford before the transfer window closes.

The French international needs to play regular first team football in order to continue his development and regain his form.

A loae move to Manchester United might be exactly what he needs right now.

Dembele has not been able to hold down a regular starting berth at Barcelona because of his injury problems are Manchester United could give him the platform he needs to succeed.

According to reports, the move to Manchester United is edging closer and the two clubs are currently locked in talks over the 23 year old.

Manchester United have been in touch with the players agent as well in order to convince him to agree to a loan move.

The Premier League side were chasing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund all summer but the transfer seems unlikely now. 

Dembele should prove to be a quality alternative and he would be an upgrade on Manchester United’s current wide options as well. 

Manchester United need to add some unpredictability to their attack and the Barcelona winger will be ideal.
