Barcelona have reportedly put a price on defender Samuel Umtiti. The centre-back has been someone that Barcelona have valued but due to injury issues as of late he hasn’t made the impact on the team they hoped. His playing time was mostly absorbed by Clement Lenglet and now the club are willing to sell him.

The selling of Umtiti would be to help bolster a cash store of money Barcelona need to make both Antoine Griezmann and Neymar moves this summer. Given the rumors around both Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele being in the heads of PSG and other buyers, Umtiti has joined the frey.

According to reports, Barcelona are willing to part with their defender for 60 million euros. The price would be that high due to the first season highs he saw when at Barcelona.
