Transfer: Barcelona Reveal Umtiti Asking Price

Published

Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have reportedly set an asking price for Samuel Umtiti, as they prepare to cash in on the defender this summer.

According to Goal, Barcelona would consider selling Umtiti, if an offer of €70-90m (£60-77m) comes in.

Umtiti has dropped down the pecking order at the Nou Camp this season, with Clement Lenglet cementing his place in central defence alongside Gerard Pique.

Naija News understands that the La Liga giants are also in advanced discussions with Ajax to land Matthijs de Ligt, fueling rumours of Umtiti’s imminent departure.

Manchester United have previously been linked with Umtiti and Arsenal have emerged as a serious contender for the 25-year-old Frenchman’s signature.

Barca’s concerns about Umtiti’s persistent knee injuries, combined with their need to raise funds for De Ligt has made a summer move very likely.
