Man United rival Spurs for sensational striker

dembele1234Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have endured a difficult few days, spending a large amount at the bar, but there appears to be some positive news on the transfer front.

The Evening Standard states that Manchester United are keen to rival Tottenham Hotspur for the signature of Fulham’s impressive forward Moussa Dembele.

19-year-old Dembele has impressed this season after scoring nine goals in all competitions for the Championship side and both Premier League clubs have sent representatives to scout the young striker this season.

However, foreign clubs have a decent chance of snatching the France U20 international as his contract in West London expires at the end of the current campaign- meaning he is free to discuss a pre-contractual agreement with clubs outside of England in the New Year.

Fulham have also offered the player a new four-and-a-half year deal but it’s highly likely the player will be on the move in 2016.

Tottenham fans at the bar have revealed their frustrations regarding United’s interest, as they’re desperate for the striker to come into the side and partner Harry Kane.

Which club needs Dembele’s signature more? Let us know in the comments below!
