Speaking of his contract extension at Barca ahead of next month World Cup in Russia, Umtiti told reporters, "On my contract extension, I have no news".

The Manchester Evening News reports Fred's transfer from Shakhtar is close to completion, with United ready to tie up a £53m deal to bring him to the club.

It looks set to be a busy summer at Old Trafford.


Whilst Nemanja Matic greatly impressed for United following his summer transfer from rivals Chelsea, France global Paul Pogba had a season to forget, with the former Juventus man putting in a number of ineffective performances that saw Mourinho lose faith in the 25-year-old.

"There's been some advanced talks since January, when I nearly went to Man City", Fred said. Soon after, City and United talked to Shakhtar and my agents.

In Game 7 in Miami, James had 31 points and 12 boards as the Heat won the series en route to the NBA Championship. Coach Tyronn Lue listened and kept James on the floor until the outcome was secured with 57 seconds remaining.

Manchester United are, reportedly at least, wasting no time at all this transfer window. But I am focused exclusively on the World Cup.

He's been plying his trade in England for almost 10 years, but Marouane Fellaini's next career move could potentially take him overseas. "He's a very calm guy, one that I give all the freedom [to decide], as he is someone I deeply trust".

Meanwhile, Barcelona have given a nod to Arsenal's pursuit of forward, Ousmane Dembele and the French global might be seen moving to the Premier League next season.

City boss Pep Guardiola tried to capture Fred in January but walked away after an offer of around £40m was rejected.

He added: "It's an honour to be on the radar of great European coaches". But I believe I have a versatility on the pitch and I'm a multi-skilled player, being able to play in both midfield positions. "I think it's important to settle these cases before the start of the competition and for my part, it will be done", the defender said.
