Man Utd snubbed Moussa Dembele transfer because of Rashford’s breakthrough – now they might have to pay £60m for striker – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED twice missed the chance to sign Moussa Dembele.

Now United face shelling out £60million to beat their rivals for the Lyon striker.

Sources in France confirm that four years ago the Old Trafford club were very keen on Dembele, then at Fulham, but chose to put their faith in the emerging Marcus Rashford instead.

United chiefs told the striker’s agent to try to find him a club close by so that they could keep an eye on his development.

Dembele went to Celtic but when the time came for him to move on again, Lyon snapped him up for £20m in 2018.

To be fair to United, Rashford has justified the confidence they showed in him.

But bringing in Dembele to play alongside him will cost the club a huge sum and give Celtic a bonus of £3m thanks to a sell-on clause.
