Manchester United January Transfer For Soumare & Moussa Dembele


Manchester United have been linked with a move for two of the most promising players in French Ligue 1.

This is according to the publication from popular media channel ESPN which revealed that the Red Devils are interested in Boubakry Soumare and Moussa Dembele.

French defensive midfielder Soumare plays his club football for Ligue 1 club Lille, while French striker Dembele is on the payroll of Champions League campaigners Lyon.

It was revealed that Manchester United have watched Soumare on several occasions this season and he’s seen as the long-term replacement for star player Paul Pogba.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba has been disturbed by a persistent ankle injury this season and that has seen him miss the majority of the games played this term.

He has missed eight of the last ten games played by Manchester United in all competitions.

Pogba won’t be back in action anytime soon after his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he’ll be out for an additional one month until around December.

Apart from £35m-rated Soumare, Manchester United are also interested in a move for Moussa Dembele who was formerly with English Championship side Fulham and Scottish champions Celtic before joining Lyon in a £19m deal last summer.
