Manchester City reportedly have no interest in signing Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho or Samuel Umtiti in exchange for Ferran Torres.

Manchester City reportedly have no intention of welcoming Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, Samuel Umtiti or Philippe Coutinho to the club.

Dembele and Umtiti are both due to become free agents in 2022, although Barca are still keen to tie the former down to a new deal as Umtiti prepares to depart, while Coutinho is out of contract in 2023.

With Barcelona thought to be edging closer to a deal to Ferran Torres, there have been suggestions that La Blaugrana could offer one of their out-of-favour players to drive the price down.

However, Marca claims that City do not hold an interest in any member of the trio, which has presented a roadblock in Barca's attempts to bring Torres to Camp Nou.

The report adds that cash-strapped Barcelona will have to stump up €70m (£59.8m) in straight cash to land Torres, but City would be interested in a part-exchange deal with Ansu Fati, even though such a proposal is 'incredibly unlikely'.

City manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly willing to let Torres leave for the right price, but a January deal is looking unlikely at present.
