It looks like the French forward could be moving from Barcelona to Manchester United after struggles to sign Jadon Sancho.

Could Manchester United Sign Ousmane Dembele This Transfer Window?

Bookmakers believe that Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele is set for a transfer to Manchester United. Manchester United still hope to sign Jadon Sancho but with that looking incresingly unlikely, it now appears they've targeted another former Dortmund star, Ousmane Dembele.

One British bookmakers currently has Dembele at 1/3 (-300) to move to the red half of Manchester before the transfer window slams shut.

That implies a 75% probability that the French international makes the move and links up with fellow countrymen Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba.

The forward is 6/1 (+600) to stay at Barcelona, leaving bookmakers to bleive there is just a 14.3% chance that he stays with his current club. He's not a popular man in Spain, and new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman is keen to get him out of the club.

He could be an ideal signing for United though, who need attacking reinforcements and will remember the incredible performances he put in at Dortmund. His one season in Germany resulted in 6 goals in 32 appearances but he appeared to have it all, with pace, and dribbling, that immediately alerted the attention of the world's biggest clubs. In August 2017 he moved to Barcelona for €105 and €40m in add-ons, he's struggled with injuries and form since his move and a loan could be the best thing for both him and the club.

Manchester United currently sit 14th in the Premier League table with one win from two games to their name. Online bookmakers currently have United as the 4th favorites to win the league, their Premier League odds currently sit at +3800 with FanDuel.

Are Manchester United singing Jadon Sancho?

Manchester United have been heavily linked with Jadon Sancho all summer and although there are strong reports of a fresh transfer big it currently seems unlikely that the England international will be leaving Dortmund this summer.
