Samuel Umtiti ‘on verge of Juventus move’

Samuel Umtiti ‘on verge of Juventus move’


Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti will join Juventus this summer, according to a report.

Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti will reportedly join Juventus in this summer’s transfer window.

Umtiti made over 80 appearances for Barca during his first two seasons at the club.

The 25-year-old has had a difficult 2018-19 campaign, though, with a knee problem seeing him miss a number of matches, and Clement Lenglet has emerged as Gerard Pique‘s first-choice partner in central defence.

Manchester United and Arsenal were amongst those to be linked with Umtiti, but according to Diario AS, Juve have won the race for the France international ahead of the 2019-2020 campaign.

The defender, who joined Barca from Lyon in the summer of 2016, has won one La Liga title and two Copa del Rey crowns during his time at Camp Nou.
