Ousmane Dembélé could be playing for Manchester United right now if he had accepted the offer to go on loan at the beginning of October, but if there is one club that has him in its sights to make a real bid for him, it is Juventus. During the negotiations between Barça and Juventus for Arthur Melo and Miralem Pjanic, the name of Frenchman asking for a loan came up but Barça said no. Quique Setién, then the coach, had blind faith in him when he returned from injury. MD reported in May 2020 that Juve's strong interest in Dembélé still stands almost a year later.
Although they are counting on Cristiano Ronaldo for next season, the 36 years of the Portuguese and the need to make a leap in quality make Juve think about Dembélé in the short term to regain the top in Italy and aspire to win the Champions League after the resounding consecutive defeats against Ajax (1/4), Lyon (1/8) and Porto (1/8). Dembélé is aware of Juve's interest and in the last group stage, he scored in Turin (0-2).
