Barcelona are “willing to do business” with Manchester United if the Red Devils make an offer for Ousmane Dembele during the January transfer window, according to the Independent.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has held discussions with CEO Ed Woodward about strengthening the squad after a poor start to the season, and the pair are considering a move for the French international.
Dembele has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and has only played two games this campaign and Barca are said to be open to negotiating the player’s sale when the window reopens.
The 22-year-old could, however, cost a significant sum with the Frenchman rated at over £100m. Whether United would sanction such a deal, it remains to be seen.
They spent £150m on young players in the summer and Dembele certainly fits the profile of what the team are looking for. He is young, has pace and would fill a problem position on the right side of the front three.
