Man United in pole position to sign World Cup winner


English Premier League outfit Man United are reported to be favourites in the chase for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele ahead of the summer transfer window.

The France international was linked with a move away from the Spanish La Liga outfit in the last summer transfer window but he refused to leave despite being told that he is not a part of the team.

It is understood that he has now agreed to leave Camp Nou because he will not be having enough playing time because of the presence of Fati Ansu in the team. He will now consider a move to Man United or any suitors with the best offer.

The Red Devils are hoping to include the World Cup winner in a huge swap deal that could have Paul Pogba move to the other side as Barcelona are also interested in signing the former Juventus player.

Man United might have made up their mind to part ways with Paul Pogba because he has not been at his best and has continued to be controversial with most time spent on being linked away from the club.

Ousmane Dembele on the other hand was keen to stay with Barcelona but he is forced to make the decision because he will not be favoured with playing time anymore. He has been told, alongside Samuel Umtiti to leave the club.

Howbeit, Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid will be willing to fight for the signature of the French midfielder as they are long-term suitors for his service. Paul Pogba had severally sparked speculations of his move to join Los Blancos having claimed that every player will want to play for the Spanish giants.

For reasons unknown, Man United owners have great love for Paul Pogba and do not want him out of the club but for obvious reasons as well, they could be forced to a change of heart.
