Transfer Rumours

Barcelona expecting a call from Manchester United to finalise a deal

According to ESPN’s Moises Llorens, Barcelona are expecting a call from Manchester United for Ousmane Dembele. 

Barcelona needs to offload a player before they can complete their move for former United player Memphis Depay. 

Depay would join Barcelona from French side Lyon.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Dembele was initially keen to stay at Barcelona, but since it has been made clear he is not in Ronald Koeman’s plans, he will push for a move.

This is a complete turnaround by both the player and his club. 

A report by Goal a few days back featured an interview with Barcelona technical director Ramon Planes, who stated that Barcelona are not looking to offload Dembele.

This is what he said: “No negotiations with Man United at the moment, completely deny that”.

“He’s a player we count on, we know his potential. We hope this year the team sees the best of him.” 

The change in the club’s feelings can be attributed to the La Liga laws which do not allow a team to buy a player before selling. 

So, long story short, Barca have to offload Dembele before completing the deal for Memphis Depay.

This would be a big victory for OGS and Manchester United. 

The club have successfully found a replacement for Jadon Sancho, who has similar abilities as the Englishman to lead his team to victory all on his own.

Manchester United could add Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Ousmane Dembele before the transfer deadline.

    After yesterdays debacle it’s pretty obvious that Utd need defenders, not more attackers. Both the defence and midfield, especially defensive midfield were woeful. No doubt Dembele is a good player but is he really a priority right now?
    Spurs were the first of the real contenders that Utd have played this season, Crystal Palace and Brighton are both mid-table teams, although it was pure luck that Utd didn’t lose to Brighton as well as Palace, so perhaps the Spurs result is not so surprising.
    It’s not the time for recriminations, it’s the time for action, and if Utd fail to address their problems in what time is left of the transfer window then the result I fear is a foregone conclusion.
