Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly in talks to sign Barcelona player Ousmane Dembele on loan for the season.
This is according to the report via popular British media outlet Sky Sports.
The Red Devils have turned their attentions to French international Dembele after they failed to convince Borussia Dortmund to sell their prized asset, Jadon Sancho.
The 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund player was the top target for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who wants to add a right-wing specialist to his squad.

Manchester United had to change direction after Borussia Dortmund placed a €120m transfer fee on their player.
The Red Devils were willing to offer €90m for the player who has been on their radar for the better part of the last two years.
Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele is the alternative for Jadon Sancho if they can sign him on loan.
Dembele has a poor injury record and that has been the biggest problem during his time at the Nou Camp.
The Frenchman is fit after several months out injured earlier this year.
His arrival at Old Trafford could lead to the exit of right wing specialist Daniel James.
The Welsh international has been linked with both Leeds and Aston Villa.
