Paris Saint-Germain appointed Barcelona defender Samuel Ummit as a priority transfer goal, and Manchester United also followed suit.
The Frenchman missed five months in the 2018/19 season with knee trauma and fell back after returning to action behind Kliment Langlott when he pecked at Camp Nou.
According to Le 10 Sport, Barcelona are ready to hear a £ 54 million offer for the 25-year-old, who is disappointed with his role at Ernesto Valverde.
The French edition states that United are linked to Umtit’s move, but now they are in danger of losing a transfer agreement following a new development this week.
Mundo Deportivo reports that PSG has expressed interest in the French international organization and is ready to abandon the potential of Philippe Kutinho and Usmanne Dembele to sign their signatures.
The first league leader also chased Ajax center Mattias De Ligt. Now he must join Juventus, who left the club to look for alternatives.
Umtiti was at the top of the PSG list, which would certainly be a big blow for US officials desperately seeking additional security when the market opened.
The Red Devils lost 54 Premier League goals last season, when Phil Jones, Chris Malling and Eric Bailly failed to convince them of the background of their beliefs.
Ummitti has the experience and quality to work with promising Viktor Lindeloff, but now PSG is able to steal his signature under United’s nose.
