Man Utd identified La Liga No.11 forward as an alternative for Sancho

Manchester United have reportedly identified Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele as an alternative to Jadon Sancho.

Since the turn of the year, the Red Devils have been frequently rumoured with the Borussia Dortmund attacker, who has been valued at £100m.

However, while it has been reported that the Red Devils are prepared to bid in excess of £50m, it stays unclear whether club officials are prepared to meet German giants asking price following to the financial implications from the coronavirus pandemic.

According to The Athletic, France international forward has emerged as a different option for the Red Devils after failing to make a sustained impact at Barcelona.

Having started only 49 games in all competitions since 2017, the former Dortmund star could be available for half of his £96.8m price this summer.

The France international has not made an appearance for the Spanish giants since November due to injury and it seems that he will miss the rest of the season as well.

Jadon Sancho is for sure the better option at the moment, however, Dembele has been one of the most skilled players in the football and if he managed to remain fit he could become one of the best players in Europe.
