Umtiti: wanted by some of Europe's best

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti, who has been a revelation this season for the Nou Camp side, has rejected talk of a move to Man Utd. The French international is reportedly a target for the Old Trafford club, who look to rebuild with a host of new faces this summer.

Barca are currently top of La Liga and Umtiti has been a stand out performer so far this campaign.

When asked about the interest of United, Umtiti replied: "My release clause is low, but that’s not what I worry about, I focus on the pitch.

"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."

Bayern Munich and Juventus are also tracking the defender, who can leave the club for a fee as low as 25 million euros according to a report from Spain.
