In the hunt to sign Ousmane Dembele, Manchester United has the upper hand over Juventus, Chelsea, and Liverpool, according to Spanish media. This summer, Dembele is expected to depart football club Barcelona as a free agent. At the end of the season, the Frenchman’s contract with the La Liga giants expires and he does not appear willing to negotiate a contract extension with Barcelona, according to Sport.es.
Barcelona is unable to offer him a raise due to the club’s financial difficulties. Dembele may not sign a new contract with the Catalans as a result. October will be a pivotal month for the former Borussia Dortmund player, according to the source, as Barcelona is eager to learn about his future plans.
He has previously been offered a contract extension, but he refuses to accept it. Manchester United is said to be leading the race to sign Ousmane Dembele at the end of the season. Since 2020 when the Red Devils were on the verge of securing his services on a loan with a purchase option they have been in contact with the player’s representatives.
On the other hand, Dembele declined to extend his contract with the Blaugrana, which was one of the terms of his loan at Old Trafford. The 24-year-old is currently out of action due to an injury and has yet to make his season debut. In 81 games for the Catalans, he has scored 18 goals and added 14 assists.
