Lyon coach Garcia admits discussing return of Barcelona defender Umtiti

Lyon coach Rudi Garcia admits they're interested in re-signing Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.

Umtiti has been transfer-listed by Barca this summer, but as yet no offers have arrived.

Garcia has admitted speaking to sporting director Juninho about Umtiti as they are looking for a centre-back.

"We have spoken about it, of course. Umtiti is a great defender, but I don't know if the operation is possible economically," he explained.

"I would like it, but I don't think it will be affordable."
