The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are counting down the days until the summer transfer window re-opens.
The Red Devils have enjoyed a decent season, but another summer of progression is clearly needed. It’s been a number of years since they were challenging for a Premier League title, and so there’s no chance of a quick fix for Jose Mourinho.
However, one or two major signings could help bridge the gap this summer, and one player that is seemingly attracting the interest of Man Utd supporters is Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.
The Frenchman, who is rated at £54 million by Transfer Markt, has developed into one of Europe’s best since moving to Spain, with his fantastic quality at the back and on the ball making him a regular at the Nou Camp.
Despite his success at the club, his future is uncertain at present. According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are in no rush to renew his contract at the club as his form has dipped in recent weeks – a decision that has made the Man Utd fans over on Reddit rather excited.
Discussing the news over on the Red Devils page on Reddit, Man Utd fans have been discussing how much of a good signing Umtiti would be. Though there is no suggestion in the report from Mundo Deportivo that the Red Devils will move for him at this time, it’s clearly something that the Old Trafford faithful would like to see happen.
After all, they’ve been poor at the back this season, with the likes of Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof struggling.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
