Man Utd boss Mourinho turns sights to Barcelona defender Umtiti

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing off a new raid on Barcelona.

Mourinho is in the market for a new centre-half and after dropping interest in the injury-prone Raphael Varane, of Real Madrid, his focus is now on Barca.

Don Balon says the United manager is preparing a move for Barca defender Samuel Umtiti.

Injury record apart, Mourinho also believes Umtiti is better suited to the rough and tumble of the Premier League than Varane.

Interestingly, it's emerged over the last 24 hours that Barca are seeking to open new contract talks with Umtiti. The Catalans particularly want to raise his current buyout clause - which sits at €60m.
