Manchester United refuse to give up in their pursuit of Ousmane Dembele this summer. After failing to lure Jadon Sancho back to England from Dortmund, they are ready to throw everything at landing the French winger. However, Dembele isn't keen on the deal and would only accept a move away from Barcelona if certain requirements were met.
Dembele doesn't want to leave on loan. Even if the loan deal forces United to make the move permanent next summer, the winger wants a long-term deal if he's to switch clubs. United know that if they can convince Dembele to join, it'll make negotiations with Barcelona much easier.
Whilst the English club try and convince Dembele to make the move, reports suggest a deal could be struck for around €73m.
The transfer window closes on the 5th October and both United and Barça have deals they want wrapping up as soon as possible. For Barça, the sale of Dembele would allow him to sign both Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay. However, as things stand, Ousmane would rather stay and fight for his place at the Camp Nou.
