Man United have stepped up their pursuit of Ousmane Dembele, urging him to’snub a new Barcelona contract and join them for free.’

According to rumors, Manchester United are interested in signing Ousmane Dembele on a free transfer.

In the next weeks, the Barcelona star will enter the final six months of his contract.

From January 1, he will be eligible to negotiate with other clubs.

And Barca sees extending his contract as a top priority.

The Red Devils hope to persuade the Frenchman to ignore the Catalan giants and join them for free, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Dembele, 24, was rumored to be interested in a loan move to Old Trafford in October 2020, but Barcelona snubbed the idea.

This time, a number of prominent players will attempt to persuade him to stay.

Dembele will be persuaded to sign a contract by club president Joan Laporta, incoming manager Xavi, and senior player Dani Alves.

SPECIAL BETTING OPTION: GET RONALDO TO SCORE FIRST AT 161 POINTS.

If he joins United, he will face stiff competition for a starting spot.

Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford are all in a similar situation.

Dembele has only played one game this season due to knee and hamstring ailments.

Since joining Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, he has played 119 times for the club, scoring 30 goals and assisting on 21 occasions.

Dembele was late for training on Tuesday morning, according to reporter Xavi Campos, after mistakingly believing that the practice was scheduled for the afternoon.

He may have been penalized under Xavi’s new sanctions system, which requires all players to arrive 90 minutes before training.
