Manchester United has apparently stopped advertising for Borussia Dortmund’s top star Jadon Sancho (20) – probably hopelessly during this period of change – and has long been poking for other offensive players. And seems to be getting closer and closer to a transfer from Ousmane Dembélé (23).
As the Spanish „As“ reports, the former BVB player is about to switch to the English record champion. According to the Sports newspaper, Barça hopes to receive a redemption sum of 50 to 60 million euros. This will then be partially reinvested in Memphis Depay (26). The Dutch compatriot of Barça coach Ronald Koeman is currently still under contract at the French club Olympique Lyon (until 2021). Already at the beginning of September, reports emerged that Barça and Lyon had agreed on a redemption of 25 million euros. Depay could follow in the footsteps of Luis Suarez (33), who left the club in the direction of league rival Atletico Madrid.
But how does Dembélé plan? According to “Mundo Deportivo“, ManUnited is said to have submitted an offer to the French almost two weeks ago. This is said to have been rejected by the ex-porter (2016 to 2017). His reasoning: He wanted to assert himself at Barça.
At Barça, the world champion was last noticed by an undisciplined attitude. He is said to have arrived 15 minutes late for practice on Monday. Not the first time Dembélé has crossed the lines with the Catalans – and with a reason that Barca wants to get rid of the French.
