It has been reported that Manchester United are lining up a surprise swoop for Barcelona speedstar Ousmane Dembele this summer.
Dembele endured a difficult first season at the Camp Nou, with injury limiting him to just 14 starts across all competitions following his big-money move from Borussia Dortmund. Barcelona have reportedly entertained the idea of sending the 21-year-old out on loan in order to aid his development and help him back to peak match fitness.
According to the Daily Star claims, United would be interested in taking Dembele to Old Trafford on a temporary basis as they look to close the gap on local rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table next season.
Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked with moves for the France international, who is currently with his country at the World Cup. Dembele scored just four goals in 23 appearances for Barcelona during his debut manoeuvre.
