INSIDER: Celtic whiz Moussa Dembele wants Man Utd over Chelsea

French sources claim Celtic whizkid Moussa Dembele wants a move to Manchester United over Chelsea.

Chelsea failed with a move for Dembele ahead of last night's 11pm transfer deadline.

But according to journalist Sara Menai, who works for French outlet SFR Sport, Dembele would prefer to join United or PSG.

Chelsea's offer was too low. Moussa Dembele won't leave Celtic in January," Menai tweeted last night.

Chelsea's offer is there but was well below the expectations of the Scottish club.

“The Blues offer aimed to probe Celtic and they have sent a clear message: Chelsea are looking for a striker.

“Moussa is contracted until 2020 and £43m is the price Celtic were expecting to discuss seriously with Chelsea. [Therefore the current] offer is too low.

“The player probably won't leave Celtic to find himself on the bench for the Blues. [He is in] no hurry, has good advice, will take his time.

Moussa Dembele's likely departure this summer: PSG/MU priority. Patrick Kluivert and Olivier Letang [PSG directors] have contacted his agent this week."
