Man United Ready To Launch £50m Bid For Barcelona Star Samuel Umtiti

Published

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is ready to go all out for Barcelona star Samuel Umtiti next month.


The Portuguese boss wants to shore up his defence after falling behind Manchester City in the title race.

With Eric Bailly injured and summer signing Victor Lindelof yet to live up to expectations,Jose Mourinho is ready to take drastic action when the window opens on Monday.

According to Spanish publication Don Balon, Mourinho is prepared to pay the £50m release clause in Umtiti’s contract.

The 24-year-old, who has been sidelined with injury of late, is under contract with Barca until 2021.

But with Liverpool splashing £75m on Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk, and Mourinho moaning about Manchester City spending big on defenders last summer, he feels he too should fork out for fresh talent.

“We are in the second year of trying to rebuild a football team you know is not one of the best teams in the world,” Mourinho said.

“Manchester City buy the full-backs for the price of the strikers, so when you speak about big football clubs, you are speaking about the history of the club.

“It is not enough, is not enough. And the price for the big clubs, the price for the big clubs is different from the other clubs, so the big, historical clubs are normally punished in the market for that history.”

However, Barca are unlikely to entertain any offers for the Frenchman having only signed him last summer from Lyon.

Ernesto Valverde is a big fan of Umtiti and while Barca have not struggled without him, he will likely walk back into the first team on his return from injury.

It remains to be seen if Umtiti would be keen to test his skills in the Premier League though.

Zinedine Zidane’s men have won the Champions League in four out of the last seven years, and are bidding to reach a record-breaking 17th final. Their form has been up and down of late, but a victory over Osasuna at the weekend sends them into the contest with momentum.

Chelsea begin the evening with an away goal advantage courtesy of Christian Pulisic’s strike in the 1-1 draw in Madrid last week. The Blues were solid last week and arguably should have taken a lead back to Stamford Bridge.
