Rivaldo urges Man Utd to consider Barcelona winger Dembele

Barcelona great Rivaldo says Manchester United should consider Blaugrana winger Ousmane Dembele.

Dembele would be a good signing for Man United should they miss out on Jadon Sancho, according to Brazilian legend Rivaldo.

He wrote in a column for Betfair: “Ousmane Dembele has travelled with Barca to Lisbon and there is a a chance we'll see him play against Bayern.

“He could be what I call a 'joker' for Barcelona, coming off the bench to affect the match, as he is very talented.

“There are rumours about him leaving the club at the end of the season, but while he is around, the manager should use him.

Manchester United are rumoured to be interested in him after having difficulties in their bid to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. Dembele could be a good option for United. He's very quick and talented, and I believe he could prosper in the Premier League."
