Umtiti Barcelona Future Concerns

Jose Mourinho in regular contact with Samuel Umtiti as Manchester United prepare £53m offer for Barcelona star

UNITED are in regular contact with Samuel Umtiti's agent, according to reports in Catalonia.

Sport report that his brother and representative, Yannick, has met with United chiefs on several occasions.

Now 24, Umtiti has developed fantastically and Manchester United are keen on bringing him to Old Trafford to partner Ivorian Eric Bailly in central defence.

Barcelona wish for Umtiti to have committed his long-term future to them before he heads off to the World Cup in Russian Federation as part of Les Bleus' squad this summer, and Umtiti will certainly use United's interest to persuade Barca to hand him a wage hike.

La Blaugrana are prepared to hand Umtiti improved terms - complete with a new mammoth release clause fee - in an effort to put an end to any talk of the ex-Lyon starlet moving away.

But United are unlikely to have an easy time of luring him to England if Umtiti decides to leave the Nou Camp.

The report adds that Mourinho calls Umtiti on a regular basis and is using the presence of his global teammates Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial to persuade the centre-back to move to United.

Spanish newspaper Sport, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to make a move to sign the defender as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his rearguard options at Old Trafford.

Umtiti joined Barcelona, who are favourites to finish top of La Liga this season, a couple of years ago for £22.5m and has a reported release clause of £53m.
