A number of Manchester United fans have flocked to claims regarding a possible swap deal involving Anthony Martial and Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
According to journalist Xavi Hernandez Navarro, relayed by @utdreport the Catalan giants are exploring the possibility of a six-month loan swap deal which would see Dembele move to Old Trafford and Martial going to the Nou Camp for the second half of the season.
How many signings do United need this month?
The 26-year-old is yet to feature under Ralf Rangnick and informed the interim boss of his wish to leave in the January transfer window. Meanwhile, Dembele – who has missed more than 100 games through injury as a Barcelona player – has made just four starts in all competitions in the current campaign.
It seems as if the French duo could both do with a change of scenery, but a number of United fans aren’t exactly keen over this reported swap deal.
United fans react
Here is what these United fans had to say in reply, with one describing Dembele as another Phil Jones due to their respective injury issues.
“Would be a terrible signing. He’s literally another Phil Jones”
“I’d rather keep Martial than have Dembele.”
“Nah we can’t get conned like this”
“Like I’ve been saying, I don’t want Dembele anywhere near Old Trafford. Bring back Bebe on loan instead.”
“Dembele is that car you buy that ends up costing more to keep fixing”
