- Samuel Umtiti could be on his way out of Barcelona when the season comes to an end
- His club Barcelona are said to be ready to allow him to leave Camp Nou this summer
- Manchester United and Manchester City are interested in signing the France international
Reigning Spanish champions Barcelona are reportedly considering selling defender Samuel Umtiti when the ongoing La Liga season comes to an end.
This latest development is now expected to be a cheering news for Manchester United and Manchester City who are said to be interested in signing the Frenchman.
Samuel Umtiti has only just returned to full fitness from a knee injury but the Catalan giants may be ready to let him go this summer.
And according to Calciomercato, Barcelona could allow Samuel Umtiti to leave Camp Nou despite paying Lyon £20.4 million for him less than three years ago.
That is because they are considering a move for Ajax prodigy Matthijs de Ligt.
Umtiti has been limited to just ten appearances so far this season for Barcelona largely due to a knee injury.
Barcelona will now listen to offers from the Premier League giants for the possibility of selling Umtiti at the end of the season.
Previously, Legit.ng had reported how Barcelona directors reportedly told star defender Samuel Umtiti that he is free to leave the club at the end of the ongoing La Liga season if he wants to.
The Catalans are currently topping the Spanish La Liga standings with 63 points after 27 games played this season.
