Man United relegates Dembele on target list, picks this player ahead


Spanish outlet, AS has reported that Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele is not considered as top on the plan for Manchester United for a winger this summer transfer window.

It is claimed that England international Jadon Sancho is top on the list, and he is followed by Gareth Bale. Barcelona starlet Ansu Fati is also next to the new Tottenham player before Ousmane Dembele who is plan D.

AS reports that the Catalans are not open to the option of giving out Ousmane Dembele on loan but will prefer to sell him on a permanent deal for £100 million, a fee the Red Devils will not be able to pay, even if he is top on the list.

With Jadon Sancho looking unlikely to join the Old Trafford this summer window and Gareth Bale already with North London outfit Tottenham, the next option for Man United, going by the report, ought to be Ansu Fati.

However, the player will not be leaving the Camp Nou as he has agreed on his first senior deal with the Spanish La Liga giants.

The 17-year-old was a revelation for the Catalans last season, scoring seven goals in 24 appearances in the La Liga which earned him the attention he now receives from suitors across Europe.

With his new deal, he will not be allowed to leave the club for anything less than £400 million while he was handed a No. 22 shirt.
