Barcelona Technical Secretary Ramon Blanes denied the departure of Frenchman Osman Dembele to Manchester United during the current summer Mercato, and said: “There are no negotiations with them. I completely deny this. He is an important player and we depend on him a lot, and we hope that we enjoy him this season, and I think it will be a year. Good for him with us. ”
However, the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” refuted this statement, and indicated that Blanes is dodging about the fate of Dembele, because Barcelona places the player in the Mercato.
She indicated that it is not unlikely that the negotiations between Barcelona and Manchester United will develop on Dembele before the end of the Mercato, next Monday, as the latter still maintains his interest in the French star.
She explained that United have a problem with the formula of the deal, as it is difficult for the club to spend a lot of money this summer, after investing nearly 100 million euros in 2020, to sign Doni Van de Beek and Bruno Fernandes.
Manchester United prefers that the Dembele deal be on loan, with entitlement to the purchase, but Barcelona want to receive the money for the deal this summer.
