Manchester United Place A £46Million Bid For Samuel Umtiti

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a move to sign Barcelona ace Samuel Umtiti in case their deal for Harry Maguire falls through.

Maguire has been Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s number one defensive target since the start of the summer and the 26-year-old defender has told Leicester that he wants to push through a switch to Old Trafford.

It’s understood that United are closing in on an £80million agreement for Maguire after a breakthrough in talks in recent days, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has his eye on a number of alternatives should the move collapse.

According to Le 10 Sport, Umtiti has emerged as a serious target for the Red Devils and discussions have taken place with Barca over a potential transfer for the France international.

The report claims that United are prepared to pay €50m (£46m) for Umtiti as a possible back-up plan should they fail to land Maguire.

However, the La Liga champions are demanding a fee of at least €60m (£55m) for the World Cup-winner.
