Barcelona slash Dembele price in Man Utd talks

Barcelona are pushing Manchester United to take Ousmane Dembele off their hands.

United are hoping to do some business before Monday's transfer deadline day, and are looking at alternatives to Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The Mirror are reporting that Barcelona would be willing to sell the 23-year-old and take a £75m hit on the price they paid for the French World Cup winner. United can now sign the player for 60m.

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 sign Lyon's Memphis Depay.
