Manchester United’s increased interest in RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland means that the Red Devils are no longer going to pursue Lyon forward Moussa Dembele.
The string of events started in October when ESPN reported extensively about Man United’s interest in Dembele.
Soon after that, The Mail extended the story by claiming that Lyon would be willing to sell the striker for £71 million.

Things have changed a bit since then though. Lyon might not be interested in selling the forward for any price at all as Memphis Depay suffered a serious ACL injury at the weekend and Lyon are currently left with little support going forward.
We wish Depay well as this is a serious blow for him and will cause him to miss Euro 2020.
However, Manchester United are now left without many options in the market if they wish to reinforce their strike force during the January transfer window, which also explains their desperation to pursue Erling Haaland.
