Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has played down suggestions he could leave the Spanish club for Manchester United in the near future.

Umtiti told Canal: “Lyon is my team, it is my city. It is the team that has given me the opportunity to play in Europe, in Barcelona and with the national team.

“There were talks with them during the transfer market, but there was never anything concrete.

“I don’t see myself in a club other than Barcelona. I have been clear with everyone on this issue.”
