Two top English clubs, Chelsea and Manchester United are amongst the clubs interested to land the powerful defender, but according to Don Balon, the player is said to prefer a move to Chelsea rather than Man United.

Samuel Umiti is valued at €60m, he has been personally recommended by Barcelona former coach Luiz Enrique and there is no doubt the former Barcelona man would be interested to sign him if he becomes Chelsea coach at the end of the season.

As per report, Luiz Enrique has told Chelsea board that he would like them to sign Smaule Umtiti if he was to replace Antonio Conte.

Samuel Umtiti has been a regular for Barcelona since his arrival in 2016 and there is a growing fear in Spain that big clubs could come in and prise him away with both Manchester United and Chelsea keen to sign him.
