Man Utd remain in hunt for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele

Manchester United remain in the hunt for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

Sport says Dembele is still of interest elsewhere in Europe.

The Barcelona winger has not shone in the Catalan capital but has many years ahead of him. United are still interested in him, even though they didn't manage to sign him in the summer.

The operation was on track but Dembele wanted to stay under Ronald Koeman and try and find a place in the team. He has done well so far and is looking confident.

His deal expires in 2022 and per journalist Fabrizio Romano, United are still interested in him, but not at any price. With this intention and knowing that Barca are asking for 70-80 million euros, they will try a loan bid. That seems unlikely for Barca to accept given his form and their various injury problems.
