Forget Maguire, United open talks to sign classy center-back

Manchester United have been busy in the transfer with the club recently announcing the move for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The Crystal Palace defender joined in a move believed to be around £50 million.

The club are not yet done as they have set their sights on signing Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti. Umtiti has become an afterthought at the Nou Camp after struggling with injuries last season.

The World Cup Winner is understood to be negotiating a move with Manchester United as he looks to get regular football.

Manchester United have been negotiating with several center-backs in the past few weeks with Harry Maguire chief among the players. However, Leicester are demanding £90 million for the defender which has halted negotiations.

This has made the club turn to Umtiti as an alternative signing for the England International. Barcelona are said to be interested in selling but want to wait on the decision of Matthijs de Ligt who has been linked with the club.

This transfer appears as one that would have several twists and turns as there have been reports that the player favors staying at the Nou Camp. While Barcelona have been reported to be interested in De Ligt.

    Sincerely speaking English press are man utd problems. Last time they were reporting utd have £100M to spend on transfer. Today the press are saying utd are planning to sign six more players.
    This’s how the press are chanting for avarage player Rashford. Am sure if rashford is in liverpool, man city, Arsenal and spurs he’ll not be in first team. If ever he make it, he’ll becoming from bench. Where is solanke of Liverpool today?.
    That rashford is demanding 350k or nothing. Omg, this avarage and english press keep promoting him. Let him goes to Barca and be telling the board he want this or that. Enough is enough. There’s one thing about lingard, very commited and responsible.
    To me, Rashford, pogba, david de gea kills umited last session. David cost us points that made us not to be in top four. I think the board should release them and let utd move on.
    United we stand.
