Barcelona are reportedly ready to offer Ousmane Dembele a new contract – but may be open to loaning the Frenchman to Manchester United in January.

Dembele was linked with a move to Man United in the summer after falling down the pecking order at the Camp Nou.

A loan move appeared to be on the cards before Dembele eventually rejected the idea in favour of fighting for his place at Barcelona.

Dembele's current contract runs until 2022 at Barcelona, meaning the Catalan giants are under pressure to make a decision.

Either sell Dembele this January or in the summer for a fair price, or tie him down to fresh terms to ensure he doesn't leave on a free.

According to Mundo Deportivo,Barcelona are keen to do the latter with Ronald Koeman hoping to begin negotiations with the Frenchman soon.

Dembele is said to be appreciative of Barcelona's stance, but wants to consider all his options first before committing his future to the club.

One option is of course a move to Manchester United, who may reportedly make an approach for Dembele in January.

Whether Barcelona would accept an offer for the Frenchman remains to be seen.

If they did, it would likely only be a loan deal, with Barcelona tying Dembele down to fresh terms before he left. But it does seem unlikely on the whole, given that Ansu Fati is injured and the La Liga giants are in need of the back-up.

Will Ousmane Dembele ever play for Man United? Have your say here.
