Man City to match Umtiti buyout clause - in January

Manchester City are ready to meet the buyout clause of Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.

The Sun says City boss Pep Guardiola is poised to launch a £50 million January bid for Umtiti.

The Manchester City boss wants to sign a centre-back as a priority as he targets an unprecedented Quadruple in the new year.

Umtiti, 24, has the £50m release clause in his Nou Camp contract — and Manchester United are also keen on the France star.

Umtiti is refusing to consider new contract talks at Barca, despite their desperation to hike up his escape clause.
