Manchester United are allegedly getting ready a surprise swoop for Ousmane Dembele this summer.
The Barcelona winger endured a difficult first season at the Camp Nou, with injury limiting him to just 14 starts throughout all competitions following his fortune move from Borussia Dortmund.
Barca have reportedly agreed on the idea of sending Dembele out on loan so as to aid his development as well as help him back to peak match fitness.
The Daily Star says that United would be interested in taking the 21-year-old to Old Trafford on a short-term basis as they need to close the gap on local contenders Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table next season.
Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked with moves for Dembele, who is at present withFrance at the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia.
