Manchester United plan swoop for £50million Bundesliga star
Manchester United are plotting a £50million move for Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele this summer, reports The Sun.
Dembele, 19, has been impressive during his debut campaign in the Bundesliga, having turned down a host of clubs, including United, to join Dortmund from Rennes last year.
The youngster believed a move to Thomas Tuchel’s side would best aid his development, and his faith has clearly been rewarded.
Two goals so far in the Champions League have cemented Dembele as one of Europe’s most exciting talents, and only a monumental offer would tempt Dortmund into selling him.
But United are more than capable of paying the big fees, despite the genuine possibility of missing out on the Champions League next season.

Mourinho is keen to re-establish United as a force in England and Europe, with the club having not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
