Manchester United have reportedly offered Donny van de Beek to Barcelona, with Samuel Umtiti being offered as a weight for the deal.
The Netherlands international moved to Old Trafford last summer after breaking onto the scene with Ajax in their incredible 2018/19 season.
Despite high expectations following his £ 39million move, the 24-year-old has flattered himself to cheat and appears to have fallen completely out of favor under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
According to L’Express, Barca want a decision for the midfielder, despite having only made three starts at the Theater of Dreams in the previous campaign.
Boss Ronald Koeman is an admirer and would like to reunite with De Beek with ex-Ajax colleague Frenkie de Jong, with whom he has developed a great relationship in midfield.
Barcelona have already spent money this summer, going Dutch by signing Memphis Depay along with Argentina striker Sergio Aguero, but are now under financial pressure to sell players.
Lionel Messi was forced to agree to a 50% pay cut in order to stay at Camp Nou, with Koeman apparently ready to offer Umtiti to United.
The France international, who won the World Cup in 2018, was linked with a move to the Premier League after the tournament in Russia three years ago, but a move never materialized.
Umtiti lost his place to Clement Llenglet after losing form following a series of injuries and could be signed with partner Harry Maguire at the back.
Raphael Varane remains the club’s main target, with the Real Madrid center-half potentially joining compatriot Umtiti in Manchester imminently.
