Manchester United to move for Barcelona star in January?

Dembele to United?

Manchester United have been fancied to make a big-money move for Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Red Devils made three signings in the form of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James this summer but only the latter has added to the attacking prowess of the squad.

According to Marca, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on strengthening the attack front at the turn of the year following the late departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez (on loan) to Inter Milan this summer.

The same publication claims that Dembele is one of the prime targets on their shortlist and a fee between £80m and £100m could tempt the Blaugrana to sanction his sale this winter.

Aside from Dembele, Mario Mandzukic from Juventus remains another option for the Red Devils. Solskjaer's side failed with a late approach for the Croatian in August but they are expected to come back for his services.
