Manchester United have reportedly been in regular contact with Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele’s camp over a possible transfer at the end of the campaign.
The Red Devils are believed to have missed out on the 23-year-old last summer after Barca pulled out of talks late in the window.

Spanish outlet Sport suggests that the Premier League side have stayed in touch with Dembele’s agent since then and are now ready to reopen talks with Barca.
Dembele is enjoying his best form since joining from Borussia Dortmund in an initial £97m deal four years ago as a replacement for Paris Saint-Germain-bound Neymar.
