Ex-Celtic centre-forward interested in sealing Man United move this summer

Moussa Dembele is reportedly “open” to a move to Manchester United this transfer window, reports claim.

The Frenchman was on the Red Devils’ transfer radar last summer, as the club attempted to replace Romelu Lukaku.

And his stock has not fallen in the season since, having netted 24 goals for Lyon.

He will have already endeared himself to the Old Trafford support too, having downed city rivals Manchester City with a late brace in the recent UCL quarter-final.

According to the MEN, the 24-year-old star is “open” to the transfer, although is not “desperate” to quit Lyon.

The Ligue 1 club defied the odds in the Champions League, beating Juventus and the Citizens before finally succumbing to Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

But in spite of this miracle run, they won’t be in next season’s competition, or even the UEL, after finishing seventh in the curtailed French campaign.

And while club legend and chief Juninho remains confident in the club’s future, the 45-year-old has revealed that there will be “departures” this summer.

The Brazilian told RMC Sport: ” There will be departures, but I am not worried.

“When you have players who play very well in a competition like this, like Moussa and Houssem [Aouar]…

“We will have to show the same spirit to be back in the Champions League next season.”

Houssem is another that will not be short of potential suitors this summer, with Arsenal, Juventus and Real Madrid all being mentioned with the talented midfielder.
