The ongoing inference that, come the summer, Jose Mourinho’s main priority, as far as the squad is concerned, is to strengthen the defence, has been well documented on the pages of Vital Manchester United.
The summer transfer window promises to be an interesting time as we wait to see exactly who the club will bring in.
One central defender who has been mentioned as a possible target is Samuel Umtiti.
The 24-year-old French international, on the books of the Catalan giants Barcelona, would be a marvellous option, but would he be prepared to leave the Nou Camp for a move to Old Trafford?
Perhaps so according to the popular red-top publication, The Mirror
Discussing the possibility of Umtiti becoming a Manchester United player, our aforementioned source is reporting that when the centre-back was recently asked, in an interview, about a summer move to Manchester United, he refused to offer a response.
Now, you can read into that one of two ways, either it`s a move he fancies or it`s a move he has no intention of making.
I wonder which of the two it is?
