World News – GB – Man Utd ‘agreed to transfer Ousmane Dembele’ and sent documents before deadline


Conditions at club level have reportedly been agreed between Manchester United and Barcelona for Ousmane Dembele transfer

Manchester United are said to have reached a deal with Barcelona to transfer winger Ousmane Dembele on deadline day, before the player turned down the transfer at the eleventh hour

A report from France Football has revealed United are ready to welcome the 23-year-old to Old Trafford, after agreeing on club-level terms with the Spanish giants

The move would have allowed Barca to move for Lyon striker Memphis Depay, who has been replaced on the French side by Islam Slimani of Leicester City

At 6 p.m. on October 5, just five hours before the transfer deadline, the relevant documents were « sent to the various players to be transferred to their respective future clubs »

However, at 8 p.m. ‘the ax fell’ when Dembele informed Barcelona he had no intention of leaving, preventing the conclusion of all three deals

Boss Ronald Koeman was reportedly ‘upset’ by the Frenchman’s decision, telling him he should prepare for a ‘difficult’ season at Camp Nou

United saw Dembele as a suitable alternative to main target Jadon Sancho, and turned their attention to him when it became clear that a deal for the Borussia Dortmund star was out of the question

Their interest in Sancho has been one of the main talking points throughout the transfer window, but a move has not materialized after the German side reportedly rejected all offers for his services

The Red Devils have hosted Donny van de Beek, Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri and Edinson Cavani over the summer, as well as making a deal for Atalanta starlet Amad Traoré to join the club in January

United kick off their UEFA Champions League campaign tonight as they face PSG away from home, ahead of a tough Premier League test on Saturday against Chelsea at Old Trafford
