Barcelona coach Koeman can't guarantee Man Utd target Dembele staying

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman can't guarantee Ousmane Dembele staying amid interest from Manchester United.

The Frenchman is now becoming increasingly linked with United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have started to come to terms with the likelihood of missing out on Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

Addressing the rumours this week, Koeman told reporters in Spain: "He [Dembele] is a Barca player. His future depends on what he thinks.

"I haven't spoken to him about his future. We'll see.

"I want to have happy people here, if they [players] aren't happy because they don't play, they can speak to me.

"Dembele hasn't told me anything. If nothing happens, I'm counting on him and he will have options [to play]."
