Manchester United have reportedly submitted a €40m bid to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembélé.
But he could now be leaving OL after just 12 months with a story in Goal claiming that United had launched a formal bid to sign the 22-year-old.
They state that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have offered €40m for the goalscorer but would be willing to go higher.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is known as a tough negotiator but is believed to have a good working relationship with United, having dealt with them in the Memphis Depay deal.
The Old Trafford outfit are on the hunt for a new centre forward following rumours in the Italian press that Romelu Lukaku will join Inter in the coming weeks.
