Barcelona offer Umtiti to Roma

Barcelona have offered defender Samuel Umtiti to AS Roma.

Barca have included Umtiti among a raft of fringe players they're seeking to sell this summer - and quickly - in order to fund their own transfer plans.

Tele Radio Stereo says a Barca intermediary has offered Umtiti to Roma, which are in the market for a new centre-half signing.

For the moment, Roma are considering the proposal.

And working in Barca's favour is Manchester United's decision to price Chris Smalling out of a permanent deal after a successful season-long loan with the Giallorosso.
