Moussa Dembele on being scouted twice by Man Utd in days: Flattering

Manchester United scouts watched Lyon striker Moussa Dembele again last night in their draw with Lille.

United had already scouted Dembele for Lyon's Cup win at Nantes on the weekend, says Foot Mercato.

Asked about the interest last night, Dembele declared: "It's sure to be flattering. It means that I produce good football on the field. Then it's up to me to stay focused and ignore it.

"I am a player of Olympique Lyonnais and I intend to stay until the end of the season.

“It's up to me to stay focused on football. There are people around me who are there for that. I take care of the pitch. I ignore (being scouted) because it is not something new. Since I was 14-15 years old, I am often scouted. So I ignore all that and I stay focused on the field."
