After rejecting Arsenal, this defender might be heading to Old Trafford
There are suggestions that France international and Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti could end up as a Man United player in this summer transfer window.
The World Cup winner had received interest from North London outfit Arsenal but he was quick to come out to claim that he would remain at the Camp Nou to fight for playing time at the club.
Man United have now indicated interest in the star player as they hope to land him in this summer transfer window. It is claimed that they have made inquiries about his availability.

The Red Devils have been linked with Dutch international and Ajax star Matthijs De Ligt but the future of the star player is unknown at the moment. Especially after he claimed that a decision has not been made on his next destination after also receiving interest from Barcelona.
With Man United scared of losing out on the Dutchman, they have made a move for Samuel Umtiti with the hope that they will be able to lure him to accept their bid as it is suggested that Barcelona will let him leave the club for the right fee.
However, the decision would be left to the World Cup winner to make as Barcelona are willing to cash-in.
