Dembele wants United move

French striker Moussa Dembele is reportedly said to hold the ambition of joining Manchester United from Lyon when the transfer window reopens.

Dembele has had another fine season with Les Gones and he has already amassed 19 goals from 37 appearances in all competitions.

According to Sky Sports News, the 23-year-old could be the subject of interest from both United and Chelsea this summer but he fancies a moveto the former.

It is added that the striker favours the switch to Old Trafford, given he has dreams of playing for the Mancunian giants in the Premier League next term.

Lyon are deemed to have set an asking price of £83m for the Frenchman but they will have to accept a reduced sum in order to part ways with the player.

Les Gones president Jean-Michel Aulas has recently stated that the club will be open to cashing in on players, who want a new challenge elsewhere.

Dembele was the subject of a failed £34m bid from Chelsea last month.
