Samuel Umtiti is expected to leave Barcelona in the summer

Samuel Umtiti will leave Barcelona during the summer transfer window.

The French defender has made this decision because in the last year there was almost no space from coach Ronald Koeman.

The 27-year-old has played only 13 games this edition, where in seven of them he was introduced as a substitute.

The few spaces have made the Frenchman think about leaving Camp Nou after five years at the Catalan giants.

His future lies between England and his native France, where Arsenal and Lyon are the two teams that have expressed interest.

Barcelona is ready to sell the center-back and is waiting for an offer of around 15 million euros.

Umtiti is under contract with Barcelona until 2023, but his poor form in recent years has caused his price to drop significantly.

During the January transfer window Liverpool had expressed interest in his transfer, but it was the Frenchman himself who refused the transfer to Anfield.

The defender is most likely to return to Lyon, where he sees him as the adequate team to return to his former form.

The French national team player left the Lyon academy, while in the first team he had spent four successful years before joining Barcelona in the summer of 2016. / Telegraphy /
