- Frenchman Samuel Umtiti could be on his way to Real Madrid this summer from Barcelona
- Los Blancos are said to be ready to tempt Barcelona with huge amount for them to sign him
- Umtiti has been impressive this season for Barcelona and he is also wanted by Manchester United
Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Real Madrid who are ready to bring the Frenchman to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The news will not come as a good one for Manchester United as Real Madrid are said to be ready to offer Barcelona £53 million for them to sign Samuel Umtiti.
He has been heavily linked with a summer move to Manchester United as the Red Devils want him to boost their defense next season.
But after Real Madrid's qualification for the 2017/18 Champions League final where they edged Bayern Munich 4-3 on aggregate, their defence was penetrated and they want reinforcement.
And according to the report by Don Balon, Real Madrid chiefs have identified Samuel Umtiti as a good option that will be nice in their squad next season.
Umtiti, meanwhile, is apparently unhappy with his wages at Barcelona and has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League campaigners Manchester United are reportedly planning to double their offer to Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti this summer.
