Dembele moved to Celtic Park during the summer transfer window and the 20-year-old has been a revelation for the Scottish giants, scoring 16 goals in his opening 24 appearances.

The Daily Mail suggest Jose Mourinho watched the highly-rated young forward three times last season, before he joined Celtic, and his style of play reminds him of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

It’s understood the Red Devils also had scout David Friio in attendance as Dembele scored a brilliant free-kick against England’s Under-21 side earlier this week.

Celtic, who only paid £500,000 for Dembele this summer, are desperate to keep hold of the Frenchman meaning Mourinho will have a fight on his hands if he makes a move in January.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea were also among the top clubs keeping an eye on Dembele’s goalscoring display versus England’s U21s.
