Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti is a transfer target for Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, according to a report.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly all considering moving for Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti during the January transfer window.

The France international recently hinted that he could look to leave the Spanish champions unless his current position within the squad changes.

The 2018 World Cup winner is no longer considered first choice for Barca with Clement Lenglet emerging as Gerard Pique's preferred partner at the heart of the defence.

According to L'Equipe, City view Umtiti as the player to ease their defensive problems at the start of 2020, but the Premier League champions could face competition from both United and Chelsea.

The 26-year-old has only made five first-team appearances for the Catalan giants this season.

Barca are unlikely to allow the central defender to leave on the cheap, though, as his contract at Camp Nou will run until the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
