Manchester United last-minute move for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has hit the rock as the Red Devil need to look elsewhere for their recruitment.
Barcelona want to insert an obligation to buy at the end of any loan deal, Manchester United is keen a straight loan deal leaving them with an option to bring in Jadon Sancho to the Old Trafford next season.
Dembele is not guaranteed playing time under new manager Ronald Koeman especially if the Camp Not outfit sign Memphis Depay from Lyon before the close of the transfer market on Monday.
Barcelona is in talks to sign the Dutch star from Lyon and the La Liga giants are also keen on signing Manchester City defender Eric Garcia but want to offload Jean-Clair Todibo and Dembele to offset their spending and take the weight off their salary budget.
Manchester United is expected to complete the signing of Edinson Cavani on a free transfer and Alex Telles from Porto for 15.4million before the transfer deadline.
