Manchester United are reportedly lining up a move for Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, who could be available on loan this summer.

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a surprise swoop for Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele this summer.

Dembele endured a difficult first season at Camp Nou, with injury limiting him to just 14 starts across all competitions following his big-money move from Borussia Dortmund.

Barcelona have reportedly entertained the idea of sending the 21-year-old out on loan in order to aid his development and help him back to peak match fitness.

The Daily Star claims that United would be interested in taking Dembele to Old Trafford on a temporary basis as they look to close the gap on local rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table next season.

Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked with moves for the France international, who is currently with his country at the World Cup.

Dembele scored just four goals in 23 appearances for Barcelona during his debut campaign.
