Jose Mourinho to make a big move for Barcelona’s Umtiti

Manchester United will make a push for Samuel Umtiti this summer, with Jose Mourinho being keen on getting the Barcelona’s central defender.

Sports claims that Umtiti will be offered €9m (£8m) per season in a bid to lure him to Old Trafford.

Mourinho would pair the France international with Eric Bailly at the back for the Red Devils if the two sides can agree on a fee.

However, the former Lyon man wants to remain at the Nou Camp, though, with his contract set to expire in 2021.

Umtiti, 24, is demanding a wage increase in line with his substantial development over the past year, having established himself as one of the game’s premier defenders.

Mourinho is believed to be ready to offload Chris Smalling and Phil Jones this summer, as he seeks to freshen up his backline.
