Barcelona willing to listen to offers for Manchester United target Umtiti

Samuel Umtiti could leave Barcelona this summer with the club willing to listen to offers for the reported Manchester United target.

The French international has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his defensive options, and United’s hopes of securing a deal have been boosted with the news the Spanish giants will consider selling the 25-year-old this summer.

Umtiti established himself as a first-choice at the Nou Camp after arriving from Lyon in 2016, however, injuries and the presence of Clement Lenglet saw opportunities restricted last season.

According to Sport, Barcelona are now willing to listen to offers for Umtiti, who is said to have angered club officials by refusing to undergo surgery following a knee problem.

The Frenchman is also said to have attracted interest from Italian champions Juventus, and whilst Barcelona are not opposed to keeping Umtiti at the Nou Camp they will consider a sale should they receive a bid in the region of €50m.
