The latest transfer updates from European football reports the case of French attacker Ousmane Dembele on high demand. Premier League teams are closely watching the contract progress of the Frenchmen in Barcelona.
The right-winger is out of contract in Catalonia next summer. Also, there are no signs of a contract extension as of now. The new presidency of the club got another concern this summer in the case of Dembele.
Now, they are resuming the pursuit for the player this summer. United are jammed with high-pressure games and new challenges with the upgraded status of the club. They are placed second on the table getting ready for Champions League action next season.
Ousmane Dembele to Premier League?
Ousmane Dembele seems to be the right prospects for the United and Premier League setup. The right-winger can replace the presence of Anthony Martial or Daniel James in United lineup. Both of the players are losing trust from Ole Gunnar due to inconsistency.
Also, the 23-year-old Dembele is a reliable option in the right flank who is well-known for the pace, vigilance, and technique with the ball. But, the player struggled with unfortunate injuries in Barcelona that affected his playing minutes.
He started most of the domestic games from the bench and struggled to keep his position in the starting eleven. The El-Classico defeat on Saturday increased the pressure in Barcelona team camp.
Dembele is the sure starter for Classico action and he started in the decider fixture on Saturday. Meanwhile, the 2-1 defeat to Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid made the top three positions worse for the Catalonian side.
The performance of both competitors from Madrid would decide the chance of a title sealing for Barcelona. Zidane got it correct in the Classico and now they pray for Atletico Madrid’s loss.
Tough situation at Barcelona
Meanwhile, Barcelona has got a long list to work in the summer. The new presidency needs to address the squad issues with immediate effect. Also, the financial instability due to the pandemic is another point of discussion for the summer.
Dembele can add decent cash to the bank of Barcelona as per the current market value. But, the Premier League destination is not that easy for the player due to the financial outfit. Chelsea’s pursuit of Dembele is yet to get a confirmation from the West London scouts.
However, The summer transfer window put forward a good opportunity for Dembele to begin a new chapter of his career. Manchester United are equipped with good pacers upfront and the Frenchmen can make the squad more dangerous.
