Umtiti is currently in loggerhead with Barcelona hierarchy who are refusing to meet the wage he is demanding in order to sign a new deal.

As things stand the centre-back is currently in the third tier salary level at Barcelona, but wants to move to the second tier alongside the likes of Andres Iniesta and Luis Suarez.

But the Camp Nou are unwilling to stump up the extra cash, and Manchester United are reportedly considering triggering his £60million release clause.

In an interview Telefoot, Umtiti was asked: "In the last few weeks there has been talk of Manchester United's interest in you.

Are you interested?" The defender simply avoided answering the question by replying: "Joker".

The centre-back started his career with Ligue 1 giants Lyon before signing for Barcelona in 2016 for €25m.

In his final season with the French club he beat now Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette to the Best Player of the Season award, nominated for by the fans.
