The France worldwide has been out injured with a hamstring injury in recent weeks after picking up the problem during the Champions League win over Basel back in September.

Prising him away from the Camp Nou will not be easy, but Manchester United will see the buyout clause of £53 million well within their range, and linking up with French teammate Paul Pogba may just convince Umtiti to make the move to Old Trafford.

If Pogba suffers no setbacks during the global break, Jose Mourinho is hopeful that he will be available for United's clash at home to Newcastle United on November 18. The list includes the likes of Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay.

The Red Devils scored an average of three goals per-game with Pogba in the side, but have scored almost half as many, an average of 1.6 per-game.

Veteran midfielder Michael Carrick also participated in the training sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.

United boss Mourinho confirmed he is planning to use this weekend's halt in Premier League fixtures to revive some of his flagging players and ease his long-term injury victims back to full fitness.

Carrick has only featured for United once on September 20 in the Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion, but could be back by next week.

If Pogba, Carrick and Rojo all come through training over the next week without suffering any ill-effects, there is hope they could be included in Mourinho's main group ahead of the Newcastle clash.

The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 5 November.

Reports in recent days have claimed Pogba would play for Manchester United versus Newcastle next Saturday.
