Manchester United have shown considerable progress this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. At the start of the campaign, the side were expected to be in the middle of a top four battle. Instead, they sit at second position in the Premier League table at the moment and have a comfortable six point lead over fourth-placed Chelsea.
Thus, it is safe to say that they have done better than a lot of people would have expected them to. But the important thing now will be to continue on the right direction and ultimately return to winning trophies on a consistent basis once again.
As a result, they are expected to improve their squad even further in the summer transfer window. And according to Sport, the Red Devils are interested in FC Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.
The club were linked with the French winger in the previous summer transfer window. But ultimately, a move failed to transpire. That does not mean that Dembele could not end up at Old Trafford in the future though.

Manchester United are reportedly interested in Dembele
Dembele has not enjoyed a great time in Spain since joining FC Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund. The biggest reason for that have been injuries as there is no doubt about the Frenchman’s talent or abilities.
Despite joining the La Liga giants back in 2017, he has only managed to make just 109 appearances for the club till now according to stats from Transfermarkt. But it does look like he has managed to put his injury issues behind him, making 35 appearances this season, scoring 9 goals and providing 4 assists.
His contract does expire in the summer of 2022 though and as a result, FC Barcelona might have to find him a new club this summer if they cannot agree a new deal with him soon. And if that was to happen, Manchester United appear to be one of the clubs interested in signing the 23-year-old.
