Reported Manchester United target Samuel Umtiti has once again commented on his Barcelona future amid claims he could leave this summer.

The former Lyon man is currently on a deal with the Catalan side until 2021, but it does include a lucrative €60m (£52m) release clause that United were reportedly interested in triggering.

Spanish outlet AS claimed earlier in the month that Mourinho plans to triple Umtiti’s current Barcelona wages to bring the Frenchman to Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old told L’Equipe: “I’m at a club that allowed me to realise my dream of playing there.

“I’m still under contract at the moment. So for me to leave, either they throw me out the door or I decide to leave.”

Marca have also claimed that Barcelona are eager to keep the 24-year-old and will rush ahead with talks over a new deal.
