Manchester United have reportedly identified Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele as a potential alternative to Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils have been fancied to sign Sancho this summer, but so far, they have been unable to strike a deal for his services.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are reluctant to meet Borussia Dortmund's £108m asking price outright and they are only prepared to pay an initial fee of £60m.

However, that is not acceptable for the Bundesliga outfit, who have recently stated that Sancho will remain with them for next season.

According to ESPN, the Red Devils are looking at alternative targets and Dembele is one of the players being considered.

Dembele has made only 74 appearances over the past three years for Barcelona due to injuries, but he has recently returned to action.

The Blaugrana are prepared to accept a reduced fee of £60m for his sale, but they are also open to a loan deal with an obligation to buy.
