Manchester United have bid €45million for Moussa Dembele, according to reports.
The English Premier League club have a big summer of rebuilding ahead under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It’s his first summer as United manager and he’ll be expecting a lot more from his players in his first full season.
And it looks like Dembele could be his first signing, according to goal.com.
French journalist Benjamin Quarez is reporting that United have sent an offer of €45m to Lyon to sign the ex-Celtic striker:
There’s no update on what Lyon make of that offer – but you’d have to assume that won’t be enough considering the Ligue 1 club spent €22m on Dembele only a year ago.
In his first season, Dembele scored 17 goals and assisted four in 45 games.
What would a Dembele move to United mean to Celtic? Peter Lawwell has previous for inserting sell-on clauses in deals when letting key players leave the Hoops and cashed in on those with players like Victor Wanyama and Virgil van Dijk.
In van Dijk’s case, Celtic received 10% of the £75m Liverpool spent to sign the Dutch defender from Southampton.
If they did the same with Dembele, that would see them pocket around £4m.
