Samuel Umtiti is aware of interest from Manchester United and other clubs in Europe but the Barcelona centre-back said he is “very happy” at the La Liga leaders.
Umtiti is believed to be a top target for Jose Mourinho and United as the 24-year-old France international reportedly pushes for a new contract at Barca.
Asked about links to United, Umtiti – who revealed discussions over a new Barca deal have not started – told Canal+: “There is interest from several clubs but, I said it again, I have so many objectives to reach with Barcelona that for the moment the question does not arise.
“In this world, it goes very fast. But what I can say is that I am very happy.”
“My future is a subject that I don’t want to talk about too much,” he added. “I haven’t started anything yet. Maybe there is an interest from Barca [for an extension], but nothing has started.”
Umtiti’s buyout clause is set at €60 million, making him an appealing target for clubs throughout Europe.
