Man United want to sign Umtiti

Manchester United are not happy with negotiations with Harry Maguire and intend to shift on Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.

The Red Devils are experiencing a bad period in their history, connected to the departure of the old generation of players, who grew on the ideals of sir Alex Ferguson. While other clubs gradually got used to reality of the transfer market, Man United bypassed this stage and is now paying for that in full.

The club is trying to get out of the catastrophe with little investment, in which they were forced by David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, but it will be hard to do that with unexperienced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. At the same time, the club went the right path in the pre-season transfer window. Having been left without a spot in the Champions League, the Red Devils signed Wan-Bissaka, having found replacement for Valencia, are conducting negotiations on Lukaku’s exchange for Dybala and are looking for a defender. Alexis Sanchez’s sale lacks for a full picture, to unload payroll.

The lengthy negotiations with Leicester over the transfer of central defender Harry Maguire became Manchester United’s problem. It seemed that the club had time, but the team defender recently got injured. The Ivorian had surgery and he will return to the pitch at least closer to Christmas, according to the Mancunians’ head coach.

Therefore, the Red Devils have catastrophically little time before the start of the new season, which start on the 4th August already with the Super Cup match between Liverpool and Manchester City and in the first round, which start on 11th August for Manchester United, they will play with London’s Chelsea.

According to Le10Sport information, the Red Devils are ready to put on Barcelona’s table about 50 million euros for Samuel Umtiti, despite the fact that last season he was constantly followed by injuries, he lost his shape and spent only 14 matches in La Liga. In such a stalemate situation, United should have paid for Maguire, knowing that it would not be difficult for him to adapt to the new league and the likelihood of injury recurrence was extremely low.
