Both Chelsea and Manchester United have been dealt a transfer blow by Barcelona, with reports indicating that the La Liga giants are backing Ousmane Dembele to finally come good at the Camp Nou. The Catalan giants are also set to make one final attempt to tie Dembele down to a new deal.
Dembele has been ravaged by injuries on a persistent basis ever since he arrived at Barca from Borussia Dortmund back in 2017.
The French winger has struggled to fulfill his potential as a result of his fitness issues – and there had been a suggestion that the club could be ready to facilitate an exit for the 24-year-old.
Both Chelsea and United are believed to be keen on taking advantage of Barcelona’s financial woes by striking a cut-price deal for Dembele is he is made available for transfer – and a new report from SPORT reveals that the duo, along with Juventus and Bayern Munich, have all held discussions with Dembele’s representatives.
New Barca boss Xavi Hernandez is set to be without Ansu Fati for the crunch clash with Bayern Munich on Wednesday night; meaning Dembele will be handed the chance to lead the line for the Catalan giants.
