Report: Chelsea and Manchester United in chase for Borussia Dortmund star
Ousmane Dembele has been heavily linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund following the sacking of manager Thomas Tuchel.
According to Eurosport in France, Dembele will not be joining Barcelona, a development which has put Chelsea and Manchester United on red alert.
There had been reports that Mino Raiola was trying to lure the player onto his books, but we understand that is not true.
The 20-year-old showcased his brilliance earlier this month when he scored his first international goal for France in a 3-2 win over England.
It is also being reported that Dortmund will demand €80 million to sanction the release of the player, but that’s peanuts to clubs like Chelsea and United.
The former Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year rejected the chance to join Leicester City a year ago, so it will be interesting to see if he reconsiders a move to the Premier League.
Sources close to the player have told Freebets.co.uk that the player has always “dreamed” of a move to Barcelona.
