Manchester City are looking for Umtiti

Manchester City, unlike what has happened in the last decade, has remained calm in the markets, making no transfers.

The “sky blues” market has functioned only at the exit with the departures of Aguero, Eric Garcia, Angelino and Jack Harrison, while at the entrance there is no movement to be identified, only footballers who have returned from loan.

The management is not that they are not working and Guardiola has asked the club for a center-back to be one more alternative for the Stones-Dias duo and the name of the Frenchman Samuel Umtiti has come to the surface. The 27-year-old, who was once the undisputed starter at Barca, is no longer important to the Catalans and coach Koeman last season activated him only 6 times in La Liga formation.

The Frenchman from Cameroon has a contract with Barca until 2023, but the Spanish club would be happy if Umtiti left, because he earns 12 million euros net per season without bonuses and his transfer elsewhere would facilitate the payroll of ” blaugrana”.

In this way, Barcelona is ready to immediately sit down in talks with City, but must also convince the player himself, because, at the moment he does not want to go elsewhere with a lower salary, despite being aware that in “azulgranat” there is no place for him.
