Transfer rumor: How Man United could line up with Dembele.

According to a latest report by Diario Sport, Manchester United are willing to give Ousmane Dembele a large pay bump if he leaves Barcelona for free at the end of the season.

The report also adds that Barca have given him until the end of this month to accept the renewal. If he doesn’t, he will watch football from the stands this season.

With these latest reports, it's looking like we're are about to witness another 'Moriba saga'.

Without a doubt, Ousmane Dembele is a very talented player, however, injuries have hampered his progress at the Nou Camp.

If Manchester United manages to snap him next summer, the Frenchman will be a big boost for them especially if he manages to be injury-free.

In this article, we'll be looking at how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could set up his side with the 24-year-old star. Check it out below:

Formation

In terms of formation, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might have to ditch his usual 4-2-3-1 formation for the 4-3-3 formation to accommodate the French youngster.

Goalkeeper

David De Gea seems to have become an undisputed starter following his recent impressive performances. As such, he's expected to keep his place in the goal.

Defense

Dembele's possible introduction isn't expected to alter the team's defensive set up. The duo of Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire is still expected to keep their places in central defense with Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka playing as full-backs.

Midfield

Bruno Fernandes is undoubtedly a starter in the attacking-midfield position. Fred and Paul Pogba are the two options that could complete the trio.

Attack

Mason Greenwood might have to give way for Dembele on the right-wing-forward position. Dembele is obviously more talented and more electric than the English youngster.

Cristiano Ronaldo could keep his place as a center-forward with Jadon Sancho cutting in from the left.

Here's an illustration of the possible lineup below:
