Manchester United have been told they can sign Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele for a ‘cut-price £60m’.
The Red Devils are hoping to do some business before Monday’s transfer deadline day, and are looking at alternatives to Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
United have turned their attentions to Dembele who signed for the Catalan giants for a massive £135m back in 2017.
Barcelona are reportedly willing to take a hit on the £135m they payed for Ousmane Dembele
Ronald Koeman is hoping to raise funds so he can reunite with Dutch winger Memphis Depay
Now the Daily Mirror are reporting that Barcelona would be willing to sell the 23-year-old and take a £75m hit on the price they payed for the French World Cup winner.
It adds that neither Dembele nor Barcelona are interested in agreeing a loan move for him to join Old Trafford.
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman is still hopeful of acquiring funds so he can Lyon’s Memphis Depay.
Koeman knows Depay well from his time as the Dutch national coach and has made the 26-year-old his top target.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made Jadon Sancho his number one transfer priority at the start of the transfer window.
However United look set to miss out on the England star as Dortmund refuse to budge on their £108m valuation of the player after rejecting a £91m bid from the Red Devils.
Manchester United have not match Borussia Dortmund’s valuation of target Jadon Sancho
Manchester United have until just Monday to make further recruitments after only signing Donny van de Beek from Ajax this summer.
They will be tasked with the decision whether to up their bid for 20-year-old Sancho or move to another target like Dembele.
Dembele has struggled with injuries since joining the Nou Camp, making just five La Liga appearances during the 2019-20 campaign.
