Barcelona Defender Linked to Manchester United Move

Barcelona Defender Linked to Manchester United Move

Speculation, in the morning press, suggests that Barcelona face a fight to hang on to one of their central defenders.

According to the English news source, the Daily Mirror, Manchester United are looking at trying to acquire the services of Samuel Umtiti come the opening of the January transfer window.

Despite spending heavily, in the summer transfer window, on the Swedish centre-back, Victor Lindelof, the Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, is still looking for the ideal partner Eric Bailly.

Umtiti, just 24-years-of-age, joined Barcelona from Lyon, for a fee of £22 million, has been a revelation at the heart of the Barcelona defence alongside Gerard Pique.

His current contract, with Barcelona, contains a hefty buy-out clause of £53 million, which our source believes is too high in the opinion of Manchester United.

However, sat here in the Vital Barcelona editorial hot-seat, I`d be absolutely amazed if Barcelona entertained the idea of parting company with the French international.

How about you?
