Chelsea and Manchester United have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.



The Frenchman has entered the final year of his deal, and he can negotiate a pre-contract with a foreign club in January.

The Blaugrana are keen to negotiate a new deal before that, but they feel that the player's agent is talking with other teams.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Blaugrana believe his representative is already in contact with Chelsea and United.

United are long-term admirers of the World Cup winner, and they attempted to sign him on a temporary deal last summer.

They have since added Jadon Sancho to their ranks, but there remains speculation that they are still interested in him.

Meanwhile, the Blues may return to the market for a new winger with suggestions that Hakim Ziyech could leave the club.

Aside from Ziyech, there are also question marks over the futures of Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi beyond this season.
