Report: Chelsea, Man Utd target wants Dortmund exit

Date published: Friday 23rd June 2017 2:48

France star Ousmane Dembele reportedly wants to quit Borussia Dortmund following the exit of coach Thomas Tuchel.

Dortmund and Tuchel parted ways at the end of last season, while Dembele has since showcased his talent when he scored the winner for France against 10-man in a 3-2 friendly triumph.

Tuchel brough in Dembele from Rennes last summer, with the 20-year-old scoring 10 goals and providing an incredible 21 assists in all competitions for Dortmund.

But the France forward is now said to be seeking a move, though a switch to Spanish giants Barcelona is not on the horizon, despite some reports to the contrary.

Eurosport reports: “According to our sources, he has been badly affected by the exit of Tuchel, the man who brought him to Germany from Rennes for €15m on a five-year contract a year ago.”

The report credits Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United with an interest, despite Dortmund being likely to demand £70million for the former Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year.

Dortmund are already facing the prospect of losing leading marksman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the Bundesliga club having named their price for the prolific striker.
