Manchester United plotting move for Barça footballer as alternative to Sancho

Manchester United's 2019-20 season seems ready to end with the team earning a spot in the UEFA Champions League, and with that in mind, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to add talent to the squad, even if they have not been as successful in their previous teams.

According to the Daily Express, Manchester United's main transfer target is still Jadon Sancho, but Borussia Dortmund seems reluctant to let the player leave on a cut-price fee. The German side is asking for over $120M for the deal, an amount of money the Red Devils are not willing to pay. Hence, the English club is considering other options, and they have found a good chance to do business with Barcelona.

The English newspaper states that Manchester United would be willing to hire French winger Ousmané Dembelé, especially because the player has seen his valuation drop in the past years due to his constant injuries.

Man United execs have reportedly stated that they would be interested in the player as an alternative to Sancho, especially since Barcelona could be open to let the player leave on a cut-price deal due to their complicated financial situation.

Dembelé has only played nine games this season, scoring one goal for Los Blaugranas. As of now, the player is recovering from a thigh injury, with his expected return date being August 4.
