Transfer Rumours

Confirmed: Manchester United are not in the race to sign Ousmane Dembele

Manchester United haven’t contracted Barcelona to sign Ousmane Dembele in this current summer transfer window, confirms La Blaugrana Technical Secretary Ramon Planes.

In an exclusive interview with MARCA, Planes claimed that the Catalan giants are not interested in selling Dembele this summer and are not in negotiations with Manchester United over striking a potential deal for the Frenchman. 

He said:

“There is no negotiation with Manchester United, I can confirm this.

“He is our player, we know his potential and with all the changes that have occurred in the team we hope he will give the best.

“We hope to enjoy all his possibilities. We are confident he will have a good year with us. ”

Since joining Barcelona for €145m from Borussia Dortmund in the year 2017, Dembele’s career has been ravaged by a number of different injury issues. 

Therefore, the 2020-21 season is a big campaign in the 2018 World Cup winner’s career. And the player wants to stay put at Barcelona and keep fighting for his place at the club. 

He has played 75 matches so far for Barca, having found the names 19 times and racked up 16 assists across all competitions. 

Dembele was though to be an alternative to Manchester United’s no.1 target in Jadon Sancho.

But, as it has been now confirmed that the winger will remain at Barca, the Red Devils will now have to shift their eye from Dembele to another alternative or push harder than ever to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
