United line up 'new Drogba': Moyes targets Fulham kid Dembele after stunning show in U21s clash
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2497051/Manchester-United-want-Fulhams-Moussa-Dembele.html#comments
Manchester United are considering a swoop for Fulham striker Moussa Dembele.

The Frenchman - who shares a name with the former Cottagers midfielder now plying his trade with Tottenham - impressed during a recent Under 21 clash with United.

David Moyes' No 2 Steve Round, along with coaches Phil Neville and Nicky Butt, were impressed with the 17-year-old who scored in the 2-2 draw.

The match last month also saw Darren Fletcher put on a United shirt for the first time in 10 months after his battle with a serious bowel condition.

Dembele recently signed his first professional contract with the club meaning the Premier League champions would have to pay a fee.

He was signed from the Paris Saint-Germain academy last year for £284,000, the maximum payable under FIFA rules for international transfers involving academy players.

A France youth international, he is widely regarded as his country's best in his age group and has been compared with Didier Drogba.

Been impressed every time i've seen him.

Big strong player. Good touch and good movement and finishing abilities.

Currently top scorer in the U18 league this season and making the step up to the U21's and impressing.


Get him and Patrick Roberts from there. :p

Though not sure we need a striker but if we ain't signing Bruno Gomes, Dembele will be worth a punt possibly.

Really hope we can get Roberts. Big talent from what i've seen of him so far.

Will need to pay a fee now IIRC, but would be worth it in all possibility.

The youth squad is already bloated. Some players aren't playing as much as they should due to it.
Every player has played plenty of football for the youth team this year apart from Dorrington, Rathbone and McTominay, its the players stuck between under 18 and under 21 that are having trouble getting games. I think there will be a big clear out this summer anyway

He was class when the U21's played them. He seemed a very good dribbler too and took his goal well in that game.

Video from last years under 18 final which he got a hat trick in. Goals at 0:40, 2:10 and 7:15

Dembele made his Fulham debut at the weekend coming on as a sub and pulling his hamstring almost straight away
