Manchester United are interested in signing former Celtic striker Moussa Dembele. As reported by L’Equipe, and relayed by the Daily Mail, the Red Devils are keen on the Frenchman, valued at £43 million.
Considering the season he has had since leaving Celtic, it is a move that would make sense. Dembele has impressed back in French football. The 22-year-old has scored 18 goals in 44 games this season for the French side.
If this deal does go through, Celtic will be hoping it is for the highest amount possible.
Because, as reported by The Times, Celtic have a sell-on clause in his deal at Lyon.
The report claimed Celtic have a 10% clause in the deal. If, as reported, Dembele goes for £43 million that would be a £4.3 million windfall for Celtic.
That amount of money may not look like much, but considering the bargain approach to transfer business Celtic take, they could bring in a top player for that amount.
Dembele cost Celtic just £500,000 in compensation when joining from Fulham, as reported by The Express.
Last summer, according to the BBC, Celtic received £19.7 million for the Frenchman. Adding a little extra on top would cement what good business it was to pluck Dembele from the Cottagers back in 2016.
