According to reports this morning, Manchester United are planning an audacious bid for Borussia Dortmund youngster Ousmane Dembele.
The French teenager has had a stellar first season in Dortmund after being involved in 23 goals so far(8 goals and 15 assists). This performance is said to have impressed Jose Mourinho and he is ready to sign the Frenchman.
Dembele snubbed English teams last summer to sign for Borussia Dortmund because of their unwillingness to offer first team opportunities to youngsters. He has been proven right as he has played more games than several of his age group at premier League clubs. Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City were among those who wanted to sign him last summer.
Manchester United appear to be the only team who want him this summer, and the Red Devils are planning to tempt him with a huge salary. However, it would still depend on if United qualify for the Champions League next season.
If Dembele move fails, the Red Devils have made inter Milan winger, Ivan Perisic an alternative.
Jose Mourinho watched the Croatian during the International break and is believed to be a firm admirer of the player’s talent.
