La Blaugrana are continuing their policy of selling high earning squad players this summer with Umtiti one of the key figures set to leave Catalonia before the start of the 2021/22 campaign.
According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, the French side are well covered at centre back after completing a loan deal for Arsenal star William Saliba, and will not move for Umtiti.

Barcelona will continue their attempts to sell the 27-year-old but they are likely to be forced to lower their asking price to below €150m to secure a sale.
Umtiti’s injury record has undermined his time at Barcelona with a total of 73 games missed across the last four seasons.
