Manchester United are seriously monitoring Celtic striker Moussa Dembele as they look to give Chelsea competition for his signature in the summer, according to the Independent.
The 20-year-old has earned praise for his impressive performances in the Scottish champions this season, attracting interest from the top clubs around the world.
He’s scored 32 goals in 45 games this season, including five in the Champions League and Celtic would want at least £30m for his services, with their negotiations set to strengthen as the Old Trafford club join the race.
Miguel Delaney reports Jose Mourinho is re-assessing his striking options as a summer move for Athletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann seems far from certain.
While Dembele can’t be compared to Griezmann at the age of 20, he is seen as someone that could deliver a lot of goals and energy to the team as he’d be a brilliant parter with Marcus Rashford up front.
There are doubts over whether he’d be able to perform as well in the Premier League, but as United scouts continue to seriously monitor his talent, they’ll be able to determine if he has it in the locker to perform in England’s most competitive league.
