Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Ousmane Dembele has put eagle-eyed Manchester United fans on red alert with his suspicious social media activity.

The young sensation appears to have dropped a hint that he may be interested in a move to the Theatre Of Dreams with his activity on popular social media website Twitter.

Fans were overjoyed when they were treated to the news that Victor Lindelof had become their first signing of the summer after completing a move from Benfica.

However, several supporters noticed that Dembele had unexpectedly liked United’s tweet on their official page, confirming the capture of the Swedish central defender. He then followed it up by liking a tweet from Lindelof himself, who revealed that he couldn’t wait to get started at Old Trafford.


It is unknown as to whether Dembele and Lindelof are friends, and the French forward was simply delighted that his mate had made a switch to one of the biggest clubs in the world, or if the suspicious activity is a hint that he too would one day like to pull on the red Manchester United jersey.

The 18-year-old has been linked with the Red Devils in the past – just as every other player who has a good season – but opted to move to Borussia Dortmund instead.

There have been no rumors suggesting that he is on his way out of the Westfalenstadion, but his recent activity on Twitter has caused a feeling amongst United fans that he could be persuaded into moving to England to play in the Premier League.

Dembele is one of the most highly rated youngsters in world football at the moment, and his French teammate Hugo Lloris, who is Tottenham Hotspur’s captain, admitted that the forward would be a big hit in the Premier League.

The young starlet recently scored the winning goal as France came out 3-2 winners against England in a friendly on the 13th of June.
