Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Ousmane Dembele on a permanent basis before the transfer deadline.



The Frenchman has experienced a tough three years with Barcelona where he has suffered multiple muscular injury concerns.

However, he has returned fit for the new campaign and United have recently enquired regarding his availability.

The Red Devils were obviously looking to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, but a move appears unlikely due to the £108m price tag.

Hence, they have identified Dembele as an alternative and Sport claims that the Blaugrana won't entertain any loan offers.

They are, however, willing to sell him on a permanent deal and it is reported that they could accept a fee of around £60m.

Dembele was purchased from Dortmund for £95m in 2017, but the Blaugrana are prepared to take a loss to offload him.

They are eager to land both Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay before the deadline and selling Dembele would help their cause.
