Man City Eyeing Barca Player Umtiti

Manchester City will have to act quickly if they want to lure Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti away from the club, according to The Sun.
According to reports, Pep Guardiola has been preparing a £50million (N23.9bn) bid for the Frenchman.

However, reports from Spain say the Catalan giants will offer him a new deal in attempt to ward off any interest.

Talks over a contract renewal are due to commence "in the coming weeks" with the 24-year-old ready to extend his stay at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona believe the Frenchman's current £50million (N23.9bn) release clause is too low and they will offer him a new deal which reflects his value in the current market.

Barca believe Virgil Van Dijk's  £75m (N36bn) move to Liverpool has opened the market up to a point where Umtiti could make a big money move to the Premier League.
