Manchester United could look to replace Nemanja Vidic with young Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti
The 20-year-old has been in superb form for the Ligue 1 club this season, reportedly attracting interest from big clubs such as Arsenal and AC Milan, though United are now ready to join the chase for his signature.
The Red Devils are already confirmed as losing long-serving centre-back and captain Vidic to Inter Milan on a free transfer in the summer, and have been linked with a number of players who could possibly replace him at the back.
United manager David Moyes is keeping his options open, a club source explained, but Umtiti is fast emerging as a leading candidate to be brought in in the next transfer window, as he continues to impress with his commanding displays. (SportsDirectNews)
