Premier League giants Manchester United have made a big bid for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele according to widespread reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
The Red Devils want to strengthen their playing squad in a big way this summer and French striker Moussa Dembele could be a big part of that.
According to the specific publication from popular media outlet Goal, Manchester United have made a £35m bid for the Lyon attacker.
It was revealed that Manchester United legend Eric Cantona urged the club to make a move for the in-form player.
Moussa Dembele has had a very good season for Lyon and Manchester United are ready to swoop for him as doubts linger over the future of Romelu Lukaku at Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old has a very good record for the various French youth teams but he has not earned a senior call-up.
Moussa Dembele has scored 23 goals in all competitions for Lyon this season.
He scored two goals for Lyon in their 4-0 trouncing of Caen in their penultimate league game of the season to help his team secure Champions League football, something that Manchester United can’t offer him.
Moussa Dembele could be the direct replacement for Lukaku who has been touted as a possible transfer addition for Inter Milan this summer.
