Man United and Chelsea are reportedly among the teams to have met with the agent of Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele. The 24-year-old forward is heading towards the end of his deal at Barcelona and could be one of the biggest names available on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.
The Blaugrana have now given Ousmane a deadline of December the 31st to sort out his future, with Barcelona eager to have this saga resolved. However, the report adds that Ousmane’s agent has already held talks with the likes of Man United and Chelsea over a possible transfer deal for the attacker.
Even though France international hasn’t quite managed to show his best form during his time with Barcelona, he looked an elite young talent at his former club Borussia Dortmund, so big names like Man United and Chelsea might still be prepared to take a gamble on him.
If he gets back to his best, the French winger could be a superb signing at Man United, with the Red Devils in need of an upgrade on the out-of-form Anthony Martial, while Jesse Lingard is another player heading towards the end of his deal.
Chelsea, meanwhile, would surely also benefit from having an extra option in front-line, with footballers like Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic not looking entirely convincing for a while now.
