Manchester United may have been given the green light to make a move for Barcelona forward Ousman Dembele this summer.

The Frenchman was part of the Catalan team that got beaten by Real Madrid at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano earlier this weekend.

Although he still has one year left on his current deal with the Nou Camp outfit, Dembele is not sure of his future at the club.

He doesn't know what plans the new president Joan Laporta has for him and a few other stars whose future might also be uncertain.

The 2018 World Cup winner was quoted by SunSport speaking to beIN Sports:

"My future? I still have a year of contract left. There hasn't been a discussion with the club yet, I'm happy, and I feel good.
"Then there is the new president who has arrived and whom I do not know too well, but he is very close to the players. We'll see how it goes."

Barcelona elected Laporta as their new president for the second time last month and has been tasked with persuading Dembele to sign a new deal.

Meanwhile, sources claim the former Dortmund star's deal will be extended but it is left to be seen when that will happen as negotiations are yet to begin.

United are believed to be in regular contact with Dembele's representatives and they are rumoured to be planning a bid this summer. Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have also been linked with the player.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has urged Lionel Messi to remain at Barcelona saying the Argentine seems better off at the club.

The Frenchman also insisted that the 33-year-old's presence alone boosts the image of the Spanish League.

Los Blancos welcome Barcelona to the Santiago Bernabeu this weekend for the second leg of their El Clasico and the hosts will be hoping they can do a double on their bitter rivals.
