Planes: No negotiations with Man United for Dembele

Barcelona technical secretary Ramon Planes has denied speculation that Manchester United are in talks to sign Ousmane Dembele.

A raft of reports in recent days have suggested Dembele is United’s number one alternative to Jadon Sancho.

And today, L’Equipe claimed that 23-year-old Dembele was ‘excited’ about the chance to play for United.

The French daily further reported that a deal for Dembele to join United was ‘taking shape’.

However, during the unveiling of new boy Sergino Dest today, Barca chief Planes appeared to pour cold water on those stories.

“There are no negotiations with United for Dembele at the moment,” said Planes. “He’s a player we count on, we know his potential.

“We hope this year the team sees the best of him.”

French international Dembele was an unused substitute for Barca in their 3-0 win over Celta Vigo last night.
