Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele could be on his way out.
Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has been out for the last six months after an injury in the winter ruled him out for long. The Frenchman is tipped to make a return to action in the UEFA Champions League after he was seen training with his teammates last week. However, he may not be around at the Camp Nou for much longer.

It’s no secret that Dembele is considered a liability in the Catalans’ offices and he has clearly not lived up to the amount exceeding 100 million euros that was spent on him. The former Borussia Dortmund superstar has been linked with an exit since some months now and Manchester United is the newest entrant for his services, Diario GOL reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is looking for a winger who could help them going forward. On the right flank, they don’t have many experienced players and certainly not some who can play exquisitely as per their standards. The Red Devils cannot rely on the likes of Daniel James and Andreas Pereira given their substandard performances of late.
Dembele is looked at as an alternative to Sancho.
Jadon Sancho has been linked with a switch to the Old Trafford but his price is proving to be a major hindrance. The Borussia Dortmund ace is valued at 120 million euros and his side has clearly mentioned that there’ll be no coronavirus discounts. With that said, the north English side has to turn its attentions elsewhere.
Dembele is the man on their radar now and they believe that the World Cup winner would be a solid addition. While one can’t be sure about how the France international will perform in the Premier League, he certainly is a good riddance for the Blaugrana who must offload him without thinking twice when the sum on offer is worth 75 million euros.
Where do you think Dembele would be playing in the next season?
