Barcelona and Man Utd revisit Umtiti talks

Victor Lindelof & Samuel Umtiti are not being sold

Victor Lindelof & Samuel Umtiti are not being sold

The Sun, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that as things stand, Manchester United are planning to keep Tuanzebe at Old Trafford for next season and give him a chance to shine in the first team. The Red Devils conceded goals on regular basis in the last campaign and Solskjaer needs to act fast and lure a top quality center half this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Axel Tuanzebe to stay at Manchester United this summer as he plans to integrate him into the first team next season, according to reports.

The former Lyon defender featured in 6 out 7 games in the World Cup 2018 to help France lift the trophy but, as far as his club career is concerned, his injury record does not look good at all (Transfermarkt).

As a Manchester United supporter, I am definitely disappointed at the moment.

Status yellow high temperature warning for Galway
Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow high temperature warning for six counties in the west and south of the country. Tonight will be dry with good clear spells and perhaps just the odd shower in the south-west towards dawn.

United meanwhile have ended their pursuit of Harry Maguire, according tothe Mirror, after Leicester slapped a £100million price tag on the England worldwide.

The Spanish side are believed to be keen on Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt so perhaps this is their way of killing two birds with one stone.

However, any potential deal is probably dependent on Barcelona signing a replacement and they're reportedly losing out to Juventus in the race for De Ligt so that could be a blow to United's hopes of landing Umtiti unless the Spaniard's land an alternative target. We need a leader to command our defense, someone who is ever-present and therefore, an injury prone central defender like the Les Bleus star is not needed. The Frenchman has four years remaining on his current contract at Barcelona which expires in 2023.

And this could lead to Barca seeking to cash in on Umtiti.
