Man Utd transfer news: Surprising Samuel Umtiti decision made after Barcelona lower price | Football | Sport
Mourinho was very much interested in signing the France international in 2018 but, ultimately, missed out.
Barcelona are looking to raise funds ahead of a summer spending spree, with the Catalan giants’ financial situation bleaker amid the coronavirus crisis.
They want to re-sign Neymar, three years after the Brazil international’s controversial move to PSG.
And Barcelona are also hoping to make Lautaro Martinez their replacement for Luis Suarez, who is approaching the twilight years of his career.
As a result, they’ve slashed Umtiti’s asking price to just £27m.
And United, it seems, are willing to go after the 26-year-old and finally bring him to Old Trafford after all these years.
