Bayern Munich Likely To Land Dembele
It appears that Bayern Munich will land the young French talent, Ousmane Dembele, according to a source close to the club.
Incoming Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, had identified Rennes winger Dembele as a target for when he takes over at Etihad Stadium next season. Guardiola asked Manchester City to make a move for the player, but it now looks like he is about to lose out to his current club.
Guardiola is expected to revamp the Manchester City roster when he takes over for Manuel Pellegrini during the summer. He firmly believed that Dembele is a star in the making.
Dembele is considered to be one of the best young talents in Europe after bursting onto the scene with Rennes this season. The 18-year-old has racked up 10 goals and 5 assists over the course of 21 games this season.
In addition to Manchester United, Barcelona, Juventus, and Monaco have all expressed interest in acquiring Dembele. A source has told ESPN FC that Bayern Munich is in the best position to land the attacker.
Bayern is likely to strike an early deal to ward off their European rivals and are ready to lean Dembele back to Rennes next season as part of the deal.
