Newcastle linked Ousmane Dembele

According to reports in Spain, Newcastle United have made the “most spectacular” offer for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele amid interest from Man Utd.

The former Borussia Dortmund star is out of contract at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

He has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League. 


The absolutely official worst signings of the season XI


Barcelona spent £89m plus add-ons to sign Dembele in 2017 but this move has not gone to plan. He has only played three times this season as he has struggled with injuries.

Spanish outlet Sport (as cited by Sport Witness) are reporting that the player’s agent is “managing various offers from the Premier League”.

They state that the “most spectacular” proposal has come from Newcastle, but Dembele has “not been receptive” to a potential switch to the Magpies.

In other Man Utd news, Ralf Rangnick was confirmed as their new interim manager earlier this week.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta believes the ex-RB Leipzig boss is a “really interesting appointment”:

“He has been one of top coaches and, in every involvement he has had in game, not just coaching, he has made some radical changes in areas so he is a really interesting person in the football world and a really interesting appointment.

“We tried to gather information to understand more about what to expect and we don’t know.

“We didn’t know if he would be sitting on the bench, taking training sessions so in terms of the preparation it was a little trickier than usual because you don’t really know the influence the new coach will have.

“You do know what to expect when you play at that stadium, in front of the crowd and with a team and squad that is probably one of the most talented in the league, so you know the situations you are going to face.

“It is very difficult tactically because you don’t know how they will prepare for the game, the options they can play and the formations they can vary. So, it is focused more on ourselves, what we have to do and to make sure the team is prepared to go there and beat them.”
