Paris Saint-Germain have reached a 'verbal agreement' over personal terms with Ousmane Dembele, with the club working hard to agree a transfer fee with Barcelona.

Dembele's future has been one of the main storylines of this transfer window with the Frenchman's contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Barcelona saw a string of ultimatums not responded to by the player's agent and eventually lost patience, publicly stating that they would look to sell him immediately.

Now, Foot Mercato report that Dembele looks set to join PSG, either this month or when his Barça deal runs out.

The two parties have agreed personal terms and it is now down to Les Parisiens to negotiate a transfer fee with the La Liga side. if they wish to secure Dembele's services for the rest of this season.

Although a formal agreement has not been put in writing, this news seems to end Manchester United's pursuit of the winger. The Red Devils were not the only European side linked with Dembele either, with Bayern Munich, Chelsea and even Newcastle United mentioned as possible destinations this month.
