Manchester United are seriously looking to reinforce their attacking department this summer and are linked with a few top quality stars.
Yesterday, we covered a report (via Diario Gol) claiming that Mourinho is favorite to hire the services of Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.
Now, a new name is in the limelight in the form of French international and Borussia Dortmund playmaker Ousmane Dembele.
According to the Sun, Mourinho is keen on securing the signature of the 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who has been brilliant for the German side since joining them in the last summer’s transfer window.
The Red Devils are not the only club interested in the versatile star. Last month, we covered a report (via Mirror) claiming that Jurgen Klopp wants him at Anfield.
Capable of operating on either flank, as a central attacking midfielder and also as a secondary striker, the former Rennes star has been a key member of Tuchel’s side this season.
In 41 appearances (all competitions), Ousmane has directly contributed in no fewer than 25 goals (8 goals and 17 assists).
As per the provided Sun link, if Jose Mourinho fails to sign Dembele then he will look to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic. The teenager is rated around €71million as per CIES Football Observatory, however, the Sun claim that Man United could sign him for a fee of 50 million pounds (€59million).
