Man Utd ponder surprise move for Barcelona crock Ousmane Dembele

Manchester United are weighing up a shock move for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

United are lining up a move for Dembele should they fail to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The club's chief Michael Zorc has insisted United have no chance of signing Sancho now after he jetted off with his team-mates to Switzerland for a pre-season training camp.

ESPN says United chiefs will turn their attention to Dembele should they fail to agree on a deal for the 20-year-old.

United have held informal talks with Barcelona over a move for the French winger, who has two years left on his current deal.

Dembele is currently recovering from January hamstring surgery.
