Samuel Umtiti is one of the footballers who is on the exit ramp of the FC Barcelona ahead of this next winter market. Without any prominence in the team, and with one of the highest chips in the squad, the Barça is interested in giving it an exit and in Italy a door could be opened for the French central and, specifically, that of the AC Milan.
The serious injury he suffered Simon Kjaer last Wednesday before him Genoa, which has forced the Danish international to undergo an operation on his left knee and will force him to be out for six months, forces the Milan to go to the market to strengthen itself.
According to the journalist of Sky Sports Rudy Galetti, the Milan has on his list to reinforce the defense of the Barcelona Samuel Umtiti, 28, as a low-cost option, given that the Barça club would be willing to let him go on loan to revalue.
However, the option of Umtiti It is not the only one that the Italian team has. The sports management ‘rossoneri’ could decide to advance its investment in a younger profile as Benoit badiashile, 20 years old, from AS Monaco, or Mexence Lacroix, 21-year-old central Wolfsburg. Both have a market value of 30 million euros, with which it will be necessary to see if the AC Milan you are in a position to make the financial effort right now.
