Manchester United fans are expecting Jose Mourinho to splash the cash heavily once again this summer and are not surprised at all with the latest reports to emerge.
The Sun states the Red Devils have cast their eye on Borussia Dortmund ace Ousmane Dembele, who has impressed in his debut season with the Bundesliga side following his transfer to the Signal Iduna Park from Rennes last summer.
Dembele turned down a host of other offers to sign for Thomas Tuchel’s side, including a number from the Premier League, but Manchester United are ready to test the German side’s resolve with a whopping £50m offer this summer.
Dortmund are determined to keep their 19-year-old star, who has scored twice in the club’s run to the Champions League quarter-finals, but the offer from Manchester United may prove to be extremely difficult to turn down.
If United fail with their approach, Mourinho has an alternative target in the form of Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic – although our landlord has questioned where exactly all this attacking talent would fit-in at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils already boast the likes of Anthony Martial, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whilst they’ve been heavily linked with a summer move for Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann.
How would Dembele fit into Manchester United’s set-up next season? Let us know in the comments below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
