Chelsea and Manchester United have emerged as the Premier League clubs Ousmane Dembele’s camp have held discussions with as he looks to leave Barcelona.

The LaLiga giants have told the winger to find himself another club before the end of the January transfer window after failing to agree a new deal. However, a salary of approximately £210,000-a-week has proved a stumbling block for several potential suitors.

As reported by MailSport on Saturday, Dembele is available for £18million as he’s out of contract in the summer and has been offered to a number of Premier League clubs.

At Stamford Bridge Dembele would be reunited with Thomas Tuchel, who managed him at Borussia Dortmund and helped him develop into one of the best players in the Bundesliga.

The current Chelsea boss signed Dembele from Rennes in a £31.5million deal in the summer of 2016 and the Frenchman made an instant impact for Dortmund, scoring 10 goals and setting up a further 22 in 50 games in all competitions.

Tuchel was sacked by Dortmund in May 2017, with Dembele departing the club a few months later when Barcelona paid £126million to fill the void left by Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Frenchman also has admirers at Old Trafford, as United interim manager Ralf Rangnick tried to sign him in 2016 while working as director football at RB Salzburg.

PSG are also keeping tabs on the Frenchman, with the prospect of adding a France international to an already star-studded front-line thought to be appealing to the club ‘s hierarchy. 

Barca need Dembele off their books before they can register another forward and are hoping to find a solution before the transfer window shuts on Monday.

The Catalans have signed Wolves winger Adama Traore on loan this week and have spoken to Atletico Madrid about Spain forward Alvaro Morata, who is currently on loan at Juventus.
