Barcelona demanding Man Utd pay Dembele wages in full

Manchester United will need to accept a hefty wage bill if they wish to take on Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

The £215,000 a week France forward has emerged as a possible alternative to key target Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund.

The Sun says United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to wrap things up quickly with the transfer window due to close on Monday.

Barca are looking to raise funds after being hit hard by the coronavirus and with a move for Manchester City's Eric Garcia in their sights.

They would like to offload Dembele, 23, in a permanent deal but United are reluctant.

Yet Barca may be willing to let him move on loan, providing a club agrees to pay his salary in full.
