Moussa Dembele wants summer Man United move – Sky

As per a report from Sky Sports, highly-regarded Lyon star Moussa Dembele is keen on joining Premier League giants Manchester United this summer.

23-year-old hitman Dembele made a return to his home country in the summer of 2018, when the Frenchman joined Lyon from Celtic for €22 million.

And, on the back of an impressive stint with the Scottish champions, Dembele has since gone on to carry his goalscoring exploits back to Ligue 1.

The powerful attacker's debut season at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais saw him rack up 20 goals and 6 assists across all competitions.

And Dembele has continued to impress to this point in the current campaign, having already notched 20 further goals.

Dembele's Man United 'dream'

As such, the French talent, who has also found the back of the net 13 times for Les Bleus' U21 side, is unsurprisingly beginning to catch the eye of some of European football's heavyweights.

Reports earlier this season saw Manchester United heavily-linked with a swoop for Dembele.

Duncan Castles even went as far as to claim that contact had already been established with Lyon on the part of the Red Devils:

'I can tell you there has been contact between Manchester United and individuals close to Moussa Dembele to assess the player's interest in the move and to work out what the cost would be in terms of salary.'

Chelsea, meanwhile, were named as keen suitors of the attacker last month.

And, as per the aforementioned report from Sky Sports, the hopes of any interested Premier League parties appear to have been boosted, amid claims that Dembele himself is eyeing a return to England this summer.

It is Manchester United, though, who look the clear frontrunners as things stand.

Dembele reportedly 'dreams' of making the move to Old Trafford, with the Red Devils known to be on the lookout for a new centre-forward this summer.

One major stumbling block, though, comes in the form of Lyon's hefty asking price of £83 million.
