Crazy Ball – Manchester United are said to be getting a young Barcelona winger, Ousmane Dembele, for the remainder of the transfer market this summer. However, the Red Devils felt slapped at hearing Barca's request at the last minute.
The reason is that the Catalan giants are urging United to pay the full salary of Dembele – which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to borrow this season, amounting to GBP 215 thousand or the equivalent of Rp. 4 billion per week.
Solskjaer's team are indeed trying to sign the 23-year-old from the Blaugrana, after they failed to bring in Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Of course, Barca's request regarding Dembele's loan has hit Old Trafford a lot. Camp Nou does not want to accept any offer, unless MU wants to pay 100 percent of the French player's salary. This was stated The Sun, as reported Daily Mail.
Ronald Koeman wants to let go of the player permanently, as the club needs to increase revenue for transfers. However, Manchester United have been reluctant to comply with Barca's wishes, especially after they questioned Dembele's attitude and his injury record since joining the Blaugrana from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.
This has a big chance of making United fail to bring Dembele to Old Trafford. Solskjaer is even ready to find other talented players for his attacking line for the remainder of the transfer market this summer.
This summer transfer market, is scheduled to end on Monday (5/10) next week. Dembele is also known to want to revive his career at Barcelona, after he was judged to have failed to fulfill his promise at the Catalan club, and two hamstring injuries have caused him to limit his game last season.
Manchester United have long pursued Jadon Sancho as their main target, in most of the summer and early season transfer markets. However, Dortmund insisted on maintaining their assessment of the England international until the Red Devils gave in to meet Die Borussen's request.
Old Trafford previously offered £ 70 million for Sancho, which later increased to £ 100 million. However, Dortmund asked for more for these flagship players.
United then turned their attention to Dembele, who was considered to be able to replace the talent Sancho they dreamed of. However, even though Barca intend to let go of the player who is often injured, they don't want to let Dembele go cheap – because they bought him at a high price. Even for a loan agreement Barca wants the borrowing club to cover 100 percent of the player's life.
