Manchester United closing in on £60m Moussa Dembele deal?

Manchester United are ahead of Chelsea in the race to sign Lyon forward Moussa Dembele in a £60m deal, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly in a strong position to sign Lyon forward Moussa Dembele in a £60m deal.

The Red Devils were linked with the Frenchman during the January transfer window before ultimately securing the services of Odion Ighalo on loan for the remainder of the season.

United are expected to move for a new long-term striker this summer, though, and according to the Daily Star, the Red Devils are ahead of Chelsea in the race for the former Fulham youngster.

The report claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are prepared to offer the 23-year-old a more lucrative salary than the Blues, with the attacker in line for a £150,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has insisted that he will not stand in the way of any player who wants to leave the French club during this summer's transfer window.

The 20-time English champions failed to replace Romelu Lukaku ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, while Marcus Rashford's back injury led to Ighalo arriving on transfer deadline day.
