Three-time European champions Manchester United are said to be in talks to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele before this summer’s transfer market closes.
This is as per reports from various media outlets in the United Kingdom (UK).
The Daily Record specifically stated that talks have progressed between Manchester United and Barcelona over the transfer of the French international to Old Trafford.
Ousmane Dembele has endured an injury-hit time at Barcelona following his costly move from Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.

The 23-year-old signed for Barcelona in 2017 in a deal reported to be around £108m.
Constant injury issues limited his output to just 12 goals in 51 league outings and new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman won’t mind his sale as he shapes his team for the new season.
Ronald Koeman has already sanctioned a big sale following the sale of Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid.
Manchester United want a new winger and Ousmane Dembele is available as a very good alternative to top target Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund as long as the Frenchman can maintain fitness.
The Red Devils have been very quiet in the present transfer window and that has left their fans frustrated.
They have made just one major signing since the start of the transfer window in July.
