Man United Transfer News: Manchester United aim to land Ligue 1 superstar Moussa Dembele to replace reportedly out-going Romelu Lukaku.
Manchester United are set to lose Romelu Lukaku this summer, as the Belgian International has made up his mind to make a move to Inter Milan, since the newly appointed manager Antonio Conte views him as a viable addition to his rebuild plans.
In response, a report by the SkySports claims that Manchester United are aiming to land Lyon superstar Moussa Dembele to replace Lukaku at the Old Trafford.
With Inter Milan determined to grab Lukaku this summer. Manchester United need to lineup a replacement as soon as possible. Thus, Ole Solskjaer prefers Dembele, as the 23-year-old striker has been impressive with the French side.
On the other hand, negotiations between Inter Milan and Manchester United are at stalemate, as Marotta mindful of operating within Financial Fair Play rules and needing to sell Mauro Icardi, Joao Mario, Radja Nainggolan and others.
But time is running out for the Red Devils, as the English transfer window will close in less than two weeks, and the English giants will have to find a solution in the mean time.
Thus, time getting shorter for Lukaku, who wants a move out of the club this summer, and wishes to play for the Nerazzurris. Hwever, with Manchester United are forced to keep him due to lack of solutions.
The cost for Dembele is not stated yet, but if Manchester United go for the French superstar, he will surely cost a fortune to the Premier league club.
Therefore, to advance the negotiations with Lyon, Manchester United will first have to solve Lukaku’s fate at the club.
