MANCHESTER UNITED have “relaunched” contact over Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, according to reports.
The 37-year-old would like to leave Old Trafford this summer in search of Champions League football.
However, United and new boss Erik ten Hag have stated the striker is going nowhere.
According to Media Foot Marseille, with Ronaldo’s future at United up in the air, the Red Devils are exploring potential replacements.
And Lyon striker Dembele could compensate for the legendary striker’s exit.
Dembele could be picked up for a modest fee with the player entering the final year of his contract.
The 25-year-old can negotiate a pre-contract with any club from January 2023, allowing him to walk out for free.
Dembele has experience playing in England – but most of it came in the Championship.
The forward made a name for himself at Fulham before moving onto Celtic.
United could face competition from a number of Premier League clubs.
SunSport exclusively reported that Southampton are also looking at Dembele.
Southampton may shake up their attack with Armando Broja going back to Chelsea following his season-long loan.
