Man United rule out transfer for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele

Manchester United have ruled out a move for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, according to club sources.

United, who are looking to bring in an attacker before the window closes, have been linked with a move for £100million-rated Dembele, who can play on either flank.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considered Dembele when it looked as though newly-appointed Barca boss Ronald Koeman was ready to sell the France star to raise funds.

But with Luis Suarez set to leave the Nou Camp, Barca are not prepared to let Dembele go, leaving United to look elsewhere.

United have still not given up hope of signing Jadon Sancho, their No.1 summer target, despite Borussia Dortmund's insistence the right-winger is going nowhere this summer.
