Yesterday, as we surveyed the growing amount of column inches relating to the possibility of Manchester United signing the Leicester City centre-back, Harry Maguire, we mused uniteds-bid-to-sign-defender-is-now-a-race-against-the-clock.

But with Leicester City wanting an extortionate fee for their asset, £90 million, could Manchester United be on the verge of looking for an alternative solution to their defensive ails?

According to the European media source, lesport10.com that could very well be the case.

Manchester United are now, increasingly, being linked with a move for the Barcelona and French international centre-back, Samuel Umtiti.

The 25-year-old, as indicated by his wiki profile is a top-notch defender and somebody who would surely improve our defence.

But it remains to be seen whether the player would welcome a move to the Premier League and whether the two clubs could do a deal.

However, if push came to shove, I’d have to admit I’d certainly prefer Samuel Umtiti to come to the club as opposed to Harry Maguire.

But is that a view you share?

  • Umtiti can do the work better than Maquire and at a lesser cost. Eddy go full board for Umtiti pleaaaaase!!!!

  • Harry will be a waste much money, please lets go with samuel umtiti he will be a better option and can still sever better.

  • Well umtiti is good footballer and a defender but he is quite short amd not physically imposing.Reason why umtiti never settled in barca is because he and pique are similar and both are secondary ball playing kind of centre backs. We have lindelof already for that role but need a towering 6,4 plus ball playing defender who would be able to win most of his aerial battles, the one and only area where lindelof cant hold his own in the premier league. Harry maguire is exceptionally good for that. And 85 mil isnt that a big deal for united.they could recover half of that easily by selling any of these deadweights in rojo, darmian,smalling jones, fosu mensah, bailly(basically anyone in defence except tuanzebe, lindelof, shaw) .effective cost to united wouldnt even be 50 mill then. He also has premier league experience of 2 years under his belt which umtiti doesnt.Ideal case would be to get both of them and push lindelof off as he still doesnt seem like the best option to me. May he prove me wrong:p

    • Well said bro, but I will definitely oppose u when it comes to Lindelof, he’s the best defender we have so far, Lindelof is better off than Umtiti I bet that.

  • I do actually prefer Umiti to Maguire. Football is Business and Maguire is very much overpriced. Let Leicester have him for life.

  • My Comment about this matter is that Manchester united to go for umtiti,thou he might not be good as maguire but he is still better.

  • I will prefer untiti over maguire…. Untiti is a well defender he has passes,he is a talented defender. He has the manner to stop a good striker. Let’s Leicester hold their plater

    • Laliga is not a league.. so don’t compare Lindelof to Untiti and Maguire is a most for United so as to partner Lindelof … Manchester have been suffering defensive

  • I would rather prefer Maguire to Untiti. Why? Maguire is a complete centre defender with premiership experience of about two year. So, irrespective of d price, it could be better for Man U to buy Maguire now for complete team
