Manchester United Shouldn't Sign Dembele Because He Will Be Wasteful Like Jadon Sancho [OPINION]

Manchester United enjoyed one of the busiest and most costly transfer windows in Premier League history this summer, but the Red Devils are already planning their next move, which may include a bid for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele. After signing Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, the return of Cristiano Ronaldo was the cherry on top of a very successful few months for the Red Devils.

United paid £126 million for the trio, but if Dembele does not agree to a new contract with Barcelona, he could be available on a free transfer. According to the Catalan newspaper El Nacional, United attempted to sign Dembele last year and are preparing a new approach for the forward, who is in the final year of his contract with Barcelona after joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

United have already contacted Dembele's agents to inquire about his future, according to the report. Dembele has shown flashes of brilliance, but his time in Catalonia has been a huge letdown due to his terrible injury record. When the Frenchman joined the club at the age of 20, he was the second most expensive player in the world after Neymar, with an initial fee of £96 million (which could rise to £135 million). However, he injured his hamstring on his Barca debut against Getafe and had to undergo surgery.

He's been plagued by injuries since then, rupturing his hamstring again in November 2019 and missing the next nine months. He began to regain his form last season, but suffered another serious injury against Hungary during France's Euro 2020 campaign, putting him out for another five months. Barca's chances of selling Dembele over the summer were shattered by the injury, which also caused them to reconsider a potential new contract offer. According to El Nacional, Barcelona have not given up hope of reaching an agreement with Dembele on a new contract, but United's interest in him could jeopardize their efforts.

Manchester City are also interested in Dembele, according to the report, and would be open to negotiating a swap deal with Barcelona in which Raheem Sterling would move to the Nou Camp. If Dembele joins Manchester United he will be inefficient just like Jadon Sancho.
