Manchester United 'considering late move for Samuel Umtiti'

Manchester United could sign Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti before the end of the summer window, according to a report.

Manchester United could reportedly move for Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti in the final stages of this summer's transfer window.

Chris Smalling is expected to leave the Red Devils before the October 5 deadline, while Marcos Rojo could also move on, which would leave the 20-time English champions short of experienced options at the back.

A new central defender could therefore arrive at Old Trafford in the coming weeks, and according to France Football, United are weighing up an approach for Umtiti.

The France international has a contract at Camp Nou until the summer of 2023 but could allegedly be allowed to leave for free as the Catalan giants attempt to reduce their wage bill.

The 2018 World Cup winner has made 116 appearances for Barca in all competitions, but a number of injury problems restricted him to just 13 La Liga outings in 2019-20.

Umtiti has not played for his current club since the end of June due to a knee issue.
