Ousmane Dembele is already holding discussions with Juventus over a move to Turin next summer. According to Catalunya Radio, Ousmane Dembele rejected a move to Manchester United on deadline day as he has his heart set on a move to Juventus.

Dembele reportedly believes that he can regain his form by moving to Italy. There has been plenty of speculation about a potential move to Juventus for Dembele with several reports claiming that Juventus were looking to bring in the Frenchman in exchange for Douglas Costa earlier this summer.

But for now, Dembele will stay focused on regaining his starting berth in Ronald Koeman's playing XI. He has fallen down the pecking order and is below the likes of Ansu Fati and Francisco Trincao.

Manchester United tried to sign Dembele on deadline day as a deal for Jadon Sancho continued to remain elusive. They ended up signing Edinson Cavani on a free and is unlikely to return for Dembele given his injury record.
