Samuel Umtiti is set to depart  Barcelona this summer according to Diario Sport.

The centre-back is currently working with Barcelona to secure his exit after being told that he will not have any more opportunities at Camp Nou.

Barcelona desire to have Umtiti’s situation sorted out before the beginning of preseason tour.

Several Turkish clubs have expressed interest in the Frenchman but he is looking at a possible return to France with Lyon. Nice are also an option in Ligue 1.

Umtiti began his career with Lyon and broke into their first team in 2012. He enjoyed four seasons in his homeland before securing a move to Barcelona after Euro 2016, performing impressively for his first two seasons at the club and even helping France win the World Cup in Russia in 2018. Since then, however, he’s been blighted by never-ending injuries.
