Seeking a replacement for Simon Kjaer, the management of AC Milan have reportedly activated the track of the French central defender of Barça, Samuel Umtiti.
Recruiting a defensive reinforcement during the next transfer market will be the Rossoneri’s top priority. The prolonged absence of Simon Kjaer, who is due to undergo surgery soon after his left knee injury, has forced the AC Milan to be activated behind the scenes. In search of a good deal in this case, the Milanese leaders have been multiplying the avenues for a few days. After having thought of Maxence Lacroix and Benoît Badiashile, the Italian formation would have views on Samuel umtiti according to information from journalist Rudy Galetti.
Having made no appearance since the start of the current sporting exercise, the tricolor world champion could leave Catalonia next January. Having invested a lot in the preparation for the offseason to return to his best level, the Frenchman has still not taken advantage of the change of coach and the arrival of Xavi.
Having failed to reach an agreement with Samuel Umtiti concerning a reduction in his salary, the management of FC Barcelona would consider breaking the contract of his French defender according to the Catalan press.
