25-year-old World Cup winner interested in joining Man United
According to Calcio Mercato, Barcelona’s defensive rock Samuel Umtiti is interested in a move to Old Trafford in the summer.
Reports have emerged, saying that the Frenchman is open to leaving the Catalans in the summer and United is reportedly his preferred destination.
Manchester United have been linked to a centre-back all season and contrary to reports saying that Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has rejected the opportunity to sign one, Umtiti could be too big an option to pass on.
The 25-year-old has missed over half of this season due to a knee injury and has started just 8 games in the La Liga this season.
With Barcelona being heavily linked to Ajax’s teenage sensation Matthijs de Ligt over the past few months, Umtiti could well leave Camp Nou and would certainly have a number of interested clubs battling out for his signature.
The Frenchman is under contract with Barcelona until the summer of 2023 and a move now, although possible, will not be cheap.http://www.fanchesterunited.com/25-year-old-world-cup-winner-interested-in-joining-man-united/
