Transfer: Barcelona tell Arsenal, Manchester United how much Umtiti will cost

Barcelona have reportedly decided on an asking price for Samuel Umtiti, as they prepare to cash in on the defender in the 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.

The LaLiga 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.
