Barcelona star Samuel Umtiti has revealed Manchester United are keen to sign him in this summer's transfer window.

United are expected to make a move for a central defender after Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof endured challenging seasons due to injury and dips in form, with Tottenham's out-of-favour defender Toby Alderweireld reported to be near the top of manager Jose Mourinho's wanted list.

Yet it seems to he is spreading his net wide in a bid to bolster his squad, with France defender Umtiti suggesting he will have the option of a move to Old Trafford if they activate his reported €60m release clause.

"It's not only Manchester United, other clubs want me as well, but my sole focus is on Barcelona," Umtiti told Canal+.

"Negotiations for a contract renewal have not started yet. My release clause is low, but that’s not what I worry about, I'm focused on the pitch."

A player claiming to be the subject of transfer interest from big-spending United is not concrete evidence that a bid will materialise, with several big names suggesting they are the subject of interest from the Manchester club as a negotiating tool to secure a new contract with their current employers.

Yet this former Lyon defender could be an option for United if he fails to agree terms on a new contract with the Catalan club.
