Barcelona set asking price on Man Utd, Arsenal target Samuel Umtiti

Barcelona have reportedly placed a price tag on Manchester United and Arsenal target Samuel Umtiti, as the catalan side look to cash in on the defender this summer window.

Umtiti is down the chain of command in Ernesto Valverade’s team sheet, with Clement Lenglet taking pole position following injuries which has seen the center back feature only ten times for the club this season.

Barça are also reportedly in advanced talks with Ajax for club captain Matthijs De Ligt and would be hoping to offload the 25-year-old defender to make way for the dutch starlet and to raise funds for De Ligt’s proposed summer move.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been previously linked with sealing a summer move for the world cup winner. And Barcelona would sanction a deal for the defender for a fee of €70-90m according to Goal.

Samuel Umtiti is tied to the Catalan side until 2023. However a rather persistent knee injuries and in a bid to adhere to FFP limitations, Barcelona may be forced to bulge from their first asking price, with concerns from interested clubs over player fitness and status.

Umtiti on the other hand, is reluctant on leaving the Camp Nou, and will attempt to fight for his place in the team, with time almost running out for the French defender.
