- Manchester United have overtaken Arsenal in chase for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele
- Arsenal are unlikely to spend over £100million on Dembele after recent transfer signings
- Man United are still struggling to find a solution to their right-wing problems
In the recent turn of events in Latest Ousmane Dembele transfer news, Manchester United have joined Arsenal in a late attempt to sign the French winger from Barcelona this summer, reports Mundo Deportivo. Dembele transfer news linking him to The Emirates picked up last week after Dembele was pictured with the current Arsenal stars Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Sokratis Papastathopoulos. Although Dembele spent a whole season with all these players, Arsenal fans are hopeful of a £100million bid from their club but Mundo Deportivo are convinced that Manchester United are ready to hijack Arsenal’s bid and make a late bid for Dembele’s signing.
Financial expert backs Man United’s bid for Dembele
Following Mundo Deportivo‘s claims, Football finance expert Kieran Maguire has backed Man United’s spending capability and their ability to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona this summer. Maguire said: “The two Manchester clubs will be interested in him too. Mourinho is very unhappy in terms of United’s recruitment so far.
“I think most United fans saw the signing of Fred as solid, but very much treading water. If they want something to wet the appetite, then someone like Dembele could do that – and they can certainly afford him.”
Former Arsenal great Martin Keown is not that hopeful of Arsenal signing Dembele this summer after splashing cash on Aubameyang, Lucas Torreira, and Sokratis in recent months. Keown said: “I don’t see it happening. It seems like it’s an absolute fortune for the player. It doesn’t look likely.”
Man United favorites to sign Dembele
Jose Mourinho is still not convinced with the squad size he is going into the new season and will need at least 2 more signings to improve his side, especially his front three. Anthony Martial is still an unsure figure at Old Trafford where the Frenchman could still leave the club before the transfer deadline of August 31. Ousmane Dembele is easily one of the most talented players in Europe and United will sign a player of his ability and profile which the club is desperate for. The right wing continues to remain a problem area for Mourinho given how Willian and Gareth Bale have decided to stay at their respective clubs and snub a chance to play for Manchester United. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial’s position at the club is still uncertain as he is neither prepared to give up his left-wing position nor he seems anywhere near an exit from Old Trafford this summer.
