According to "Aspen" reported that Barcelona striker Dembele is very close to moving to Manchester United, his transfer fee will be between 50 million and 60 million euros, this transaction will provide funds for Barcelona to sign Lyon forward Depay .
It is reported that since Koeman became the new Barcelona head coach in August, Depay has become Barcelona’s primary transfer target. According to sources in the Aspen newspaper, Barcelona is willing to sell Dembele as long as a team offers a transfer fee of 50 million to 60 million euros. This transaction can also greatly reduce Barcelona's salary expenditure. In addition, Dembele's transfer fee can also allow Barcelona to have sufficient funds to sign Depay.
In early September, Koeman said that Barcelona need to raise funds through a transfer before they have the money to sign Depay. He told Fox Sports: "If you want to sign Depay, you must first sell some talents."
In the summer of 2017, Dembele joined Barcelona from Dortmund with a transfer fee of 145 million euros, but since he came to La Liga, he has been plagued by injuries. In three years, he only played 75 games for Barcelona.
Dembele has never played since the Champions League group match between Barcelona and Dortmund in November last year. It was not until last weekend that Barcelona defeated Villarreal 4-0 before Dembele made an official comeback.
