According to Daily Star, Barcelona chiefs believe Ousmane Dembele’s agent has been holding talks with Manchester United.
The 24 year old winger has stalled on signing a new Barcelona contract and is set to become a free agent when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The £135million winger has failed to live up to expectations since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, having suffered from a series of injuries in Catalonia.
Barcelona reportedly believe Dembele is stalling on signing a new contract because he wants to officially negotiate a move with Manchester United in January.
Barca president Joan Laporta is reportedly optimistic about tying Dembele down to a new contract in the near future, but his agent’s antics behind the scenes is creating an ‘uneasiness’ about the situation.
Manchester United reportedly see Dembele as an ideal replacement for Anthony Martial who has an uncertain future at Manchester United.
