Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele as an alternative to Jadon Sancho.

Sancho, 20, has been United’s No1 target for a number of months now as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to improve his squad.

Right wing remains an area Solskjaer is intent on improving upon – despite Mason Greenwood’s excellent form in recent weeks.

Dortmund appear unwilling to budge on their £87million valuation of Sancho, however, leading to United chiefs looking elsewhere.

And according to The Athletic, they could turn to French 2018 World Cup winner Dembele.

Since the 23-year-old joined Barcelona for an extraordinary £130m in 2017, things haven’t quite gone to plan.

Amid question marks over his training levels, Dembele has been in-and-out of Barca’s starting XI during his three years at the Nou Camp.

He has only featured five times in LaLiga this term, having had to undergo surgery for a serious hamstring injury.

With Barcelona hoping to raise funds in order to make acquisitions this summer – including potentially Neymar and Lautaro Martinez – Dembele is one of a number of players that could be let go at a cut-price.

United, like Barcelona, are also willing to sell a number of players to fund moves following the coronavirus pandemic.

Solskjaer is believed to want a striker and a centre-back in addition to a right winger.

And in order to fund moves for all three, the Red Devils will listen to offers for Marcos Rojo, Alexis Sanchez, Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot, Chris Smalling and Jesse Lingard.
