Ashley Young’s club Manchester United is looking to sign the Belgian midfielder Moussa Dembele. A few days ago, the manager of Manchester united, Sir Alex Ferguson, had made it clear that Angelo Henriquez is his last signing this summer and he would not sign any more player this year. But, it seems that Ferguson is still looking to sign a few players. According to the reports, Ferguson has been quite impressed with the playing style of Dembele and he is keen to have the Belgian midfielder in the United team. Apart from United, Tottenham Hotspur is also in the race of signing Dembele.
Dembele is currently playing for Fulham. He has been with Fulham since the last 2 years. He had joined the club in August 2010 on a contract of 3 years. Fulham had bought him from AZ Alkmaar after paying a contract fee of 5 million pounds. He played his first match for Fulham against Manchester United. His first goal for Fulham was against Port Vale in a match of the League Cup. In the last season, Dembele played in the central midfield and performed very well for Fulham. At the end of the last season, Martin Jol, the manager of Fulham, had said that the club wants to extend the contract of Dembele. But, Dembele hasn’t yet signed a new deal with Fulham.
A few days ago, in one of his interviews, Dembele had said that his tenure at Fulham has been quite decent so far and he would not leave Fulham until he gets the offer of a big club. Now, he has got the offer of a big club in the form of Manchester United. It would be interesting to see whether Dembele joins United or decides to stay with Fulham.
