Manchester United have reserved the number 7 shirt, formerly worn by Cristiano Ronaldo, for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
According to El Nacional, Man United are willing to offer Ronaldo’s legendary number 7 shirt to Dembele as they hope that it will tempt the 26-year-old forward into coming to Old Trafford.
Dembele has been the subject of speculation regarding a summer move, as Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in signing him.
The France international signed a two-year extension with Barcelona last summer, which will run out at the end of the 2023-2024 season.
This summer, the release clause in his contract will come down from €100 million to €50 million, making him an enticing prospect for top European clubs.
With Man United back in the UEFA Champions League next season, manager Erik ten Hag is keen to reinforce his team.
Dembele, with his pace and flair, could be a great addition to the Red Devils squad, as Jadon Sancho and Antony have failed to make consistent contributions to the team’s attack.
