Mathieu ‘considering Barca exit’

Jeremy Mathieu is considering offers to leave Barcelona from Besiktas and Liverpool as he expects to have a reduced role in the coming season.

Sport cites Le Parisien as reporting Mathieu sees his minutes in 2016-17 declining with the arrivals of Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Digne, covering the centre-back and left-back sports, Mathieu having previously been an option in both areas.

Barca would want €10m to let him go and at 32, he would welcome a move to Anfield, for what would be the last big contract of his career.

Besiktas are, meanwhile, willing to offer €7m to get the France international from Camp Nou.
