Sunday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Ousmane Dembele, Alex Telles, Luke Shaw

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Sunday, October 4.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester United eye possible reinforcements.

The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in the final days of the winter window but are still expected to be active in the summer as they aim to restore their former glories.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Sunday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele keen on Manchester United move?

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is allegedly "enthusiastic" about the possibility of joining Manchester United.

Having grown frustrated with their efforts to sign Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, United are contemplating alternatives to the England international.

Dembele, who is not regarded as first choice at Camp Nou, is said to be on the radar of the Premier League giants.

According to L'Equipe, the 23-year-old is open to making the switch to Old Trafford before Monday's transfer deadline.

United midfielder Paul Pogba is said to have held discussions with the French compatriot in order to encourage him to leave La Liga for England, even if it is on a temporary basis.

While Barcelona want to reduce their wage bill, it is unclear whether they will be able to strike an agreement with United which suits both clubs.

Barcelona 'want to sell Ousmane Dembele to Manchester United'

Barcelona are reportedly keen to sell Ousmane Dembele to Manchester United before the end of this summer's transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are said to view the France international as a possible alternative to Jadon Sancho with Borussia Dortmund holding firm when it comes to the 20-year-old.

United are only believed to be interested in loaning Dembele, though, rather than signing the World Cup winner on a permanent deal for a large fee.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Catalan giants are keen on a permanent sale, but the Red Devils will not consider acquiring the 23-year-old on a long-term basis.

Despite the recent speculation, Barca sporting director Ramon Planes denied that his club had been in talks with United over the former Dortmund attacker.

Solskjaer's team, meanwhile, are said to be in discussions with free agent Edinson Cavani.
