Samuel Umtiti confirms Manchester United interest: 'It's not only them, other clubs want me as well'
The defender has admitted that he hasn't discussed the extension of his contract with Barcelona yet. However, the Frenchman has confirmed that there was an offer from Manchester United.
Umtiti said in an interview with Canal Football Club: “Negotiations for a contract renewal have not started yet. My release clause is low [€60m], but that’s not what I worry about, I focus on the pitch,” he said.
“It’s not only Manchester United, other clubs want me as well, but my sole focus is on Barcelona.”
“It was my dream to play at Barça. And I achieved it when I was just 22. I’m very happy here, whenever I play and whenever I train.”
There have been several rumours about Umtiti's future. He has been reported to demand a better salary from Barcelona which the club is unwilling to do. Looks like all these rumours were nothing but 'fake news'...
Will Umtiti renew with Barcelona?
