Blow to Manchester United as French target rules out move

Blow to Manchester United as French target rules out move

23 Jun 2019, 22:15

Manchester United's lingering hopes of signing French star Mousa Dembele have been dashed after the player said he will still be at Lyon next season.

Dembele was in fine form for the French side in his first season at the club, scoring 23 goals and putting in man-of-the-match displays in various matches.  

It is understood that United were interested in taking the former Celtic man who still has four years left on his five-year contract. 

"I still have another four years on my contract, I will be at Lyon next season," he said after scoring the winning goal for France in their U-21 World Cup match against Croatia. 

United are said to be in the market for a new striker, with reports further indicating they will let Romelu Lukaku leave before the start of the new campaign. 

The Belgian has been linked with a move to Italy, with Inter Milan his thought destination.

The Nerazzurri, coached by former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte have had a strong interest in the former Chelsea and Everton star and might table a bid in the coming weeks.
