Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is reportedly open to a summer transfer to Manchester United.

Manchester United have reportedly been given a boost in their search for a new centre-back during the summer transfer window.

United have been keen to strengthen their backline since the start of the season, and it is expected that the North-West giants will make every attempt to make an addition in that area ahead of the next campaign.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is one player who has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford, and according to Calciomercato, the France international is open to leaving Camp Nou.

The Catalan giants may look to sign Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt in the coming months, and that could potentially lead to the La Liga side parting ways with Umtiti.

The 25-year-old - who could cost in the region of £60m - has also endured a frustrating campaign, with just 10 appearances being made in all competitions due to injury.
