Celtic’s in-form striker Moussa Dembele was scouted by Manchester United in the Hoops’ 0-4 victory over Ross County last night, report the Daily Record.
Forced to wait until the second-half to see the Frenchman in action with the 20-year-old subbed in for Ryan Christie on 58 minutes, Red Devils scout Stephen McCarthy was the man in attendance.
Scoring the Bhoys’ fourth goal of the night in a comfortable victory, this strike took Dembele’s Scottish Premiership tally to seven in just nine appearances for the Scottish giants.
A summer arrival from Fulham, Dembele’s start to life at Celtic Park has been incredible impressive with the striker scoring a hat-trick against Rangers in the league before his solitary strike knocked the Ibrox club out of the Betfred Cup last weekend.
Also having proven his skill at a superior level, notching a brace against Manchester City in the Champions League, it would appear that Manchester United are now weighing Dembele up as a potential ready-made reinforcement.
What’s more, Dembele also narrowly missed out on scooping the Golden Boy award, won by Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches with the likes of Marcus Rashford also nominated.
