Man United fans urge club to sign Mousa Dembele after latest Tottenham display

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele, rated at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, impressed in his side’s 2-2 draw against Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League knockout tie in Turin on Tuesday night, and Manchester United fans have urged their club to sign the 30-year-old.

The Belgium international has dominated the middle of the park and dictated the play in Spurs’ recent fixtures against the Red Devils, Liverpool, Arsenal and now the Serie A giants, and he has also shown the quality he has on the ball.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho has encountered some problems in midfield this season with Paul Pogba struggling when he is asked to play more defensively, while Michael Carrick is retiring at the end of the season and the futures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera are potentially in doubt.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on Dembele’s display via social media, and while one labelled him as the “missing piece to our midfield”, another said he “would fit like a glove beside Pogba and Matic”.
