Man United handed major boost in their pursuit of Barcelona attacker



La Liga giants Barcelona are reported to be open to parting ways with their star winger Ousmane Dembele amid interests from English Premier League outfit Man United for his service.

The Red Devils have been in the chase of Ousmane Dembele for the past months.

Efforts to have him join Old Trafford last summer failed after the player refused to give his nod to the move despite Barcelona’s willingness to sell.

Man United wanted Ousmane Dembele as an alternative after failing to convince German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund on a fee for England international winger Jadon Sancho.

Now that the Red Devils are yet to secure their top target, Jadon Sancho, Ousmane Dembele will be a good deal, especially as he is now available for a transfer.

So far this season, the World Cup winner has scored three times and provided one assist in nine games for the Catalan giants but that has not granted his stay at Camp Nou as he is not in the plans of manager Ronald Koeman.

When manager Ronald Koeman newly signed for Barcelona, he was asked about Ousmane Dembele, he said “What is certain in the world? I don’t know. At the moment, he’s a Barcelona player. There’s still one day left for incomings and outgoings. We’ll see.”

Now it is certain that he is not needed at the club as Barcelona are looking forward to land Brazilian international Neymar and must create space for him. The Paris Saint Germain player has not hidden this desire to play with Argentina star Lionel Messi again.

Young Barcelona star Ansu Fati ensured Ousmane Dembele had a fewer playing time with his rise to form. He was injured with expectations that the France international will take over the role but that might not happen if Barcelona receives an offer in the January winter transfer window.

However, reports say Barcelona have already been talking to Man United on the possibility of landing the France international while the former Borussia Dortmund player is aware of the talks.

Man United are now willing to have Ousmane Dembele on a loan deal with an option to make his mover permanent next summer but that seems to be against the wish of the player.

Ousmane Dembele might have changed his mind and now ready for a move but he has given the condition that he would only go on a permanent transfer, not on loan.

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
