The Sports Network confirmed that Manchester United wanted to sign Dembele on loan for the end of the season and not for good.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United coach, sees Osman Dembele as a strong alternative in the event that a deal involving Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund fails.
Manchester had made an offer to Borussia to include Sancho, but the offer was rejected due to the failure to fulfill the financial hopes of the German club.
Barcelona aspires to get rid of Dembele to join Dutchman Memphis Depay, the French Lyon striker, who is one of the goals of Dutch coach Ronald Koeman in the current transfer market.
Dembele moved to Barcelona three seasons specifically in the summer of 2017 from Borussia Dortmund, after Brazilian Neymar da Silva left for Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros, and at that time cost the Catalan club’s treasury 130 million euros, in addition to 8 variables.
Dembele suffered many injuries during the three seasons with Barcelona, including twice in the thigh muscle, and since his recent injuries he missed Barca for 191 days, and the number of injuries in 3 years reached 7 muscle injuries.
The French winger fought 75 times with Barcelona in 3 seasons, and this season, he scored 19 goals.
