Signed as a direct replacement for Neymar after the Brazilian joined PSG, Dembele has failed to live up to the expectation, despite being an important player for his previous club, Dortmund.
Where would Dembele fit in best?
Assuming the player’s best position is as a winger if he arrived at Old Trafford that could cause some to question who would start out of him, last summer’s £75 million signing Jadon Sancho, the ever-improving prodigy Marcus Rashford, or the equally impressive Mason Greenwood on the wings.
While fellow Frenchman is more suited to a central role, it would almost certainly signify the end of his career at Old Trafford, due to their being an embarrassment of riches at the club. Both Dembele, Rashford and even Greenwood are all capable of playing through the middle and are arguably more effective in that position than Martial.
Juventus meanwhile, didn’t really replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who ironically joined former club Man Utd in the summer – Moise Kean has potential but he wasn’t a player who could step straight into the Portuguese star’s boots.
Dembele though could at least offer an improvement, plus Champions League experience and may even provide the spearhead to the Old Lady’s attack in a similar fashion to the way his compatriot, Davide Trezeguet did once upon a time.
