Man Utd Making Moves With Barca for Huge Signing

October 01, 2020

Manchester United are apparently in open talks with Barcelona FC, with an expensive signing up for grabs.

The Catalan Giants are looking to let the Red Devils have Ousmane Dembele on loan before the transfer window closes on 5 October. This development follows United’s failed £91.3 million bid for Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho.

Twenty-three-year-old Dembele left Dortmund to join Barca in August 2017 for a record €105 million initial fee, which later became €138 million.

Lately, however, the Spanish side has been looking to offload him, as he has not been performing up to par since he first arrived at Camp Nou.

Although Barcelona’s new boss, Ronald Koeman, did express wanting to keep hold of him for the 2020/21 season, he recently confided that he would understand if club management let the transfer go ahead.

Time will tell if Old Trafford gets all of its desired players before the transfer period expires.
