Earlier on Monday, Mundo Deportivo reported Ousmane Dembélé’s agent has offered his client to European greats, including Manchester United.
It was also explained the Red Devils have ‘shown the most interest’ in the Barcelona winger.
The 24-year-old’s contract expires in 2022 and the La Liga side are keen to secure his long-term future.
According to Sport, his future is ‘still in the air’. Barca have already proposed a new deal, which includes a lower salary. The month of October will be decisive to know whether or not the Frenchman will sign an extension.
The Catalan club are aware his representative, Moussa Sissoko, is maintaining contacts with clubs interested in signing the player on a free transfer next summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are ‘one of them’, they’ve been interested for over a year and are in ‘open conversations’ with the agent over a potential free transfer.
As long as there was no transfer fee to pay, Manchester United would be able to present a ‘millionaire offer’ to the player, to seal the deal.
Cuatro are also reporting the Dembélé case remains open at the Camp Nou because his agent is negotiating with other clubs.
Sissoko has called several clubs to know the deal they are willing to propose, if the current Barca player joins them on a free transfer. As per the report, United are one of the clubs to receive the call from the attacker’s representative.
These leaks look they’re being pushed by Barcelona, maybe in an attempt to discredit the agent, and put pressure on the player to sign a renewal.
