Manchester United are looking to secure an audacious loan move for FC Barcelona star, Ousmane Dembele.
That’s according to the Daily Star, per The Mirror. The young Frenchman struggled during his first season at the Camp Nou, and the report claims that the Catalonia giants would be open to discussing a loan move for the right-winger; who’s future in Spain is now up in the air.
Dembele is an extremely talented footballer, there is absolutely no getting away from that. Injuries certainly didn’t help him over the last twelve months, but that doesn’t take away from his ability.
I’d welcome him at Old Trafford with open arms. This would be a wonderful signing; but only on a permanent deal. What’s the point in bringing him in for a season, then sending him back to Barcelona as a better player? He’s a raw player with so much to learn, and If we were to endure the frustrations of his inexperience, I’d want to reap the rewards in the long-term.
Then you’d have to consider any transfer fee. Even on a loan move, Barcelona would ask for a pretty hefty fee to let him leave for the season. Personally I think the Red Devils should attempt a permanent deal for Dembele, if not, don’t bother at all.
