Lyon striker, Moussa Dembele has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Chelsea to move to Stamford Bridge this January,football expert, Ian McGarry says
“My information is that Chelsea have fairly agreed a contract, verbally that is, with Dembele and his representatives in terms of the player’s wages, bonuses etc, and that it remains for the club to agree the fee, fee structure and/or any add ons etc with Jean Michel-Aulas of Lyon,” McGarry told the Transfer Window Podcast.
“So I think they are ahead in this but Manchester United need goals, almost everyone in the Premier League needs to buy goals in January, that seems to be the trend always every time this window opens, that everyone is looking for a striker.”
However,the transfer may not work as Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas had earlier this week said that Dembele was not for sale this month.
“Moussa Dembele will not leave because he wants to stay to win something with Lyon,” Aulas told reporters.
“There have been offers for him and for other players but none of those that we want to keep will leave in January.”
