Umtiti: Spoken with Griezmann…

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti admits he has spoken to Antoine Griezmann regarding a possible future transfer.

The Atletico Madrid forward’s future has been under great scrutiny in recent months with a potential move to the Camp Nou this summer speculated in the Spanish media.

“I got myself into agent mode! No, I'm kidding," Umtiti told Canal Plus, as cited by ESPN FC.

“It's true that we talk about it a lot. I was able to talk about it with him, but just to find out what he thinks of my club.

“But everyone thinks good things about it. It makes them dream. Players of that level…if he comes, we'd have to play with six forwards.”

Umtiti’s own future has come under the spotlight in recent times with a €60m release clause ensuring he is linked with other clubs.
