It’s fair to say that the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting big changes at Old Trafford this summer. It has, particularly over the last few months, been a bit of a season to forget for the Red Devils – with Jose Mourinho’s men stumbling after a strong start to the campaign.
A top-four finish is pretty much secured, but their dreams of winning the Premier League and the Champions League have gone up in flames.
As a result, it would make sense for Jose Mourinho to look to bring in a couple of big names this summer.
One player that, according to Sport, is interesting the Man Utd boss is Samuel Umtiti of Barcelona. Significantly, the Frenchman has yet to sign a new deal at the Nou Camp, and as a result, there is apparently a feeling that he is closer to a move to Man Utd than he is to agreeing fresh terms in Spain.
It would certainly be a pretty huge shock to see Umtiti – who is rated at £54 million by Transfer Markt – swap sunny Spain for Manchester. He has emerged as one of their most important players, providing brilliant defending, a strong aerial presence, and great skill with the ball at his feet.
Whilst they recognise that a move is, still, very unlikely – many can’t help but dream, it seems.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
