Umtiti to United seems to be gathering pace . Just what the defence needs -well he will do for starters 😆😆.

{Ed002's Note - There was a January attempt but sometimes it is not so easy to complete transfers and a lot of time is lost trying to get a deal in place. Manchester City put a lot of effort in the last couple of weeks of the transfer window to try and sign Fred, but now they need to wait until summer; Chelsea spent much of the transfer window trying to agree the move for a player; Liverpool would have taken Nobby Keita early but that was not possible without paying a sum they could not stomach; Arsenal put offers on the table for Medhi Benatia but got nowhere at all; Manchester United tried to sort a deal for Samuel Umtiti in January but were told that Barcelona wanted his replacement in place before they would let him go – and all of their efforts to sign Dayot Upamecano failed because of a ridiculous price tag. It is sort of the way it is now.

I am not aware of any change in the situation with Umtiti but Barcelona do see Umtiti as demanding too much too quickly from the club financially after such a short period of time. I think perhaps one to wait and see what happens and it is potentially a case of his representative looking for leverage.}

Who else gets all sorts of 'urges' when they see the long red paragraph from Ed002? Or is it just me? 😂😂😂.

Great insight as always ed!

I think Umtiti would be a fantastic addition, he is a very good LCB, good composure on the ball, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

Must mean departures then if a centreback is lined up. Also heard we're interested in Alderwierald.

{Ed002's Note - Just to repeat what has been explained, in no particular order:
Toby Alderweireld (CB) - but may need to fend off an offer of a new deal from Spurs, Manchester City and Real Madrid
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let hom leave this summer for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme
Samuel Umtiti (CB) - unlikely right now as another English side who have enquired have been told he is negotiating a new deal - if that can't be agreed we will see, but Barcelona won't sell before they have a replacement and that is provining financially difficult
David Lopez (CB) - do not rule him out}
