Barcelona determined to offload Umtiti this summer

Barcelona are determined to offload Samuel Umtiti this summer.

Whether it's a sale or even a loan, the France defender will be pushed out of the club at the end of the season, says Sport.

A move to Italy has been mooted, where Napoli, Lazio, AS Roma and Torino are all keen.

Umtiti's time with Barca - particularly over the last two seasons - has been plagued by injury. Indeed, he has only managed 18 appearances this term.

Barca chiefs are planning talks with Umtiti's agents at season end in order to encourage him to leave.
