Man Utd ‘Agree £62million Transfer’ With Lyon For Moussa Dembele

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Lyon for the transfer of Moussa Dembele.

According to Todofichajes, a deal amounting £62m (€70m) has been accepted by the Ligue 1 outfit.

It is the first signal of intent from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer, who is expected to continue his spending spree.

United have splashed out more cash than anyone else since last year.

The likes of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Bruno Fernandes have made the move, and there are still raids plotted for Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.

Dembele has been high on the radar for the Red Devils, who tried to sign him in January.

Solskjaer has been desperate to secure a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who left last summer, and had a raid fail for Erling Haaland, who chose to join Borussia Dortmund.

It saw the club divert their attention to Dembele, with Todofichajes reporting that a deal has now been agreed between all parties.

The Frenchman has been in fine form for Lyon, scoring 42 times in 88 appearances after joining from Celtic in 2018.

It will come as a major blow to Chelsea, who had also made the ex-Fulham trainee a priority in the summer.

Frank Lampard is keen to bolster his frontline after becoming too reliant on Tammy Abraham, who is still a rookie at top-tier football.
