Man United wanting to seal deal for £27m-rated striker, club sends scouts to watch him

West Bromwich Albion v Manchester United - Barclays Premier LeagueThe Manchester United supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly frustrated by their team’s performances and are already looking towards the summer months, when it is hoped that the club will add some quality players.

Many high profile signings have been linked with moves to Old Trafford and it remains to be seen which deals can be pulled off during the off season.

Our landlord is about to start cleaning out his cellar ahead of an anticipated beer delivery, when he spots a piece in the Daily Mail that claims United have been scouting Rennes striker Ousmane Dembele.

The 18-year-old-old is being touted as one of the brightest talents in French football and is also attracting Premier League interest from West Ham United, Southampton and Arsenal, whilst European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also thought to be interested.

One United fan has overheard this news and although he knows little about Dembele, he is delighted to hear that the club are still pursuing bright, young talents and not just going for world class signings – though, does think the £27 million price-tag is somewhat extortionate!

United fans, would you like to see Dembele in the red of United? Who else should the club sign? Which players will make way for new recruits? Let us know below!
