Meetings between Yannick Umtiti, Samuel's brother, and the player's agent are "constant" with Manchester United.

In addition, they state that Mourinho speaks to Umtiti on a regular basis to try and sell a move to Old Trafford, and he is using French team-mates Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial as an attraction.

As well as coughing up £54m, United would also be willing to offer double Umtiti's wages to £150,000-a-week if he joined.

The 24-year-old is in his second season at Camp Nou having moved from Lyon in 2016 and has established himself as Gerard Pique's partner in central defence.

SPORT add Barcelona are convinced they will get the approval from Umiti that he will stay, but they want him to lower his demands.

Kathy Griffin Announces New US Tour, Set to Start in 'Trump's Backyard'
With its release in May of 2017 came a swift backlash from all angles, including the Trump family and the White House. Unable to tour in the United States, Griffin went overseas, performing in 23 cities in 15 countries, she said.

Although it seems unlikely he'd be tempted to leave the Camp Nou for Manchester, the same report claims Mourinho has called him regularly to try and persuade him to make the move, using global teammates Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba to try and sell the club to him.

Our source goes on to infer that the club, managed by Jose Mourinho, are looking at activating the release clause in Umtiti's contract, a clause that is said to be of the magnitude of £54 million.

Sport adds that Barcelona are still convinced that the Frenchman will snub United, as he did in January before signing a new long-term deal.

United had identified Umtiti as one of their top transfer targets with Mourinho plotting to take advantage of his modest release clause.
