Dembele’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and Barcelona has reportedly told the winger to leave the club after he rejected their latest contract proposal. According to SPORT, Manchester United is willing to sign the winger this month but is not prepared to pay a transfer fee.
Barcelona is reportedly willing to part ways with Dembele for €20 million and has offered both Manchester United and Newcastle a chance to sing the Frenchman. However, the winger is expected to have multiple suitors this month, with the likes of Juventus, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich all said to be interested in signing him.
Dembele has only made six league appearances this season and has provided two assists. The Frenchman has struggled with injuries throughout his tenure at the Catalan club, having made only 130 appearances across all competitions since joining the club in 2017.
Manchester United is looking to bolster their attacking options as the club expects Anthony Martial to depart this month. The Frenchman is reportedly frustrated with his lack of playing time under Rangnick and is pushing for a move away from the club. Spanish club Sevilla is reportedly interested in bringing in the forward on loan but the Red Devils are looking for a permanent deal.
