Manchester United will turn their attention to Ousmane Dembele again if a bid to sign Jadon Sancho fails in the summer, according to Christian Falk of Bild.

Manchester United Eager to Sign Dembele if They Can’t Land Jadon Sancho

Linked With Both Players Over Last Few Windows

The Red Devils have been linked with moves for both players over the last few transfer windows.

However, it now appears that the club will move for the Broussard Dortmund man again at the end of the current season, but they do have a backup in case a move for the Englishman fails.

If Ole Gunner Solksjaer is unable to bring in Sancho, he will instead turn his attention to Ousmane Dembele, rather than focusing all his attention on Sancho.

No Interest From Chelsea in Dembele

Premier League rivals Chelsea have also been linked with Dembele in the past, but these reports claim that the Blues are not in contact with the player over a potential move to bring him to Stamford Bridge. As a result, that means that the route is clear for United to bring Dembele to the club if they cannot sign Sancho.

The 23-year-old has only made eight La Liga starts for Barcelona this year and it is a far cry from his time at Dortmund when he was considered one of the most exciting young players in football.

Manchester United Want to Sign Either Sancho or Dembele in Summer Window

The Frenchman would no doubt lap up the chance to reach that level again and United are prepared to give him that opportunity in the Premier League. However, that is only if they cannot sign their main target, which remains Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has played 16 league games this year and already has nine goal contributions. He’s still contributing to his team on a regular basis, but with the Bundesliga side faltering in the league, he could decide to finally take the plunge and move to Old Trafford and back to his native country of England.
