Paul Pogba playing ‘big part’ in Man United’s attempts to sign Ousmane Dembele


Word stemming from the European media on Friday suggests that Paul Pogba is playing a central role in attempting to convince Ousmane Dembele to join Manchester United.

Barca star eyed

Recent days have of course seen links between the Red Devils and Dembele begin to mount.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has long been known to be on the lookout for reinforcements out wide, with Jadon Sancho the first-choice target of those at Old Trafford.

To this point, however, a deal has not been forthcoming for the English international, as Borussia Dortmund continue to stand firm in their demands of €120 million.

In turn, Manchester United have been forced to look elsewhere, with Dembele, on the back of another difficult campaign at the Camp Nou, having seemingly been identified as the ideal backup option.

Despite having previously been labelled as untouchable by the Blaugrana, recent reports have hinted that Ronald Koeman has come around to the idea of allowing the Frenchman to move on.

In turn, Barca would be expected to launch an offensive for Lyon star Memphis Depay.

Pogba hard at work

As such, with the transfer window set to slam shut this coming Monday, the next 72 hours could well prove crucial to Man United’s prospects for the season ahead.

And, as outlined above, one individual who is said to be working hard to aid the club’s attempts to land reinforcements out wide is none other than Paul Pogba.

As per Julien Laurens of ESPN, the Red Devils midfielder is ‘playing a big part’ in attempting to convince fellow countryman Dembele to join him at Old Trafford.

This comes amid further claims that talks between United and Barca are continuing to progress ‘positively’ as things stand.
