Transfer Rater: Umtiti to Man United


Barcelona to probe Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti roles in Antoine Griezmann decision

Antoine Griezmann has finally announced his decision to stay at Atletico Madrid, and the FC panel can't quite believe how he went about it.
World Cup: Antoine Griezmann (58') France 1-0 Australia

Barcelona will speak to Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti over their involvement in Antoine Griezmann's decision to turn them down and renew his contract with Atletico Madrid.

Pique's company produced the documentary in which Griezmann rejected an offer to sign for Barca, while Umtiti publicised the airing of the programme via social media.

Barca had no idea the documentary was being made and were shocked at the manner in which Griezmann's decision was finally revealed after months of talks with the...

Barcelona's Samuel Umtiti confident in France partnership with Real Madrid's Raphael Varane

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains what's delaying Antoine Griezmann from making a decision on his future.
Toby Alderweireld to Man United? Jorginho to Man City? ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down those rumours and more in Rumour Rater.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is confident that he can form a good partnership with Real Madrid's Raphael Varane in order to boost France's World Cup prospects.

Club rivals Umtiti, 24, and Varane, 25, look certain to be the first-choice central defensive pairing for France at next month's tournament after Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny was ruled out due to injury.

The duo played together in a 2-2 draw with world champions Germany in November and in a 3-2 defeat against Colombia in March, and Umtiti...

Barcelona want Samuel Umtiti stay but not at any cost - club chief

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says the club is keen to renew Samuel Umtiti's contract but suggested they will not pay above and beyond to keep hold of him.

France international Umtiti is in the second year of a five-year deal but his relatively low release clause of €60 million has led to fears he could leave Camp Nou this summer.

Manchester United are among the clubs reported to be prepared to pay the centre-back's buyout fee.

Umtiti, 24, has remained relatively quiet over his...

Samuel Umtiti: Celebration unrelated to Barcelona contract situation

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti says his goal celebration during Wednesday's 4-1 Champions League quarterfinal first-leg win over Roma was not connected to his current contract situation.

Umtiti, linked to a move to Manchester United, heightened speculation over his future while on international duty last week by pointing out that his current €60 million release clause was "not much."

That declaration came amid reports that he was looking for a substantial pay rise from the Camp Nou board.


Barcelona would be wise to offer pay rise to lock down in-demand Samuel Umtiti

Andres Iniesta was subbed on in the second half of Barcelona's match against Athletic Bilbao to a chorus of Barcelona fans begging the midfielder to remain at the club next season.

Solid is a word which often draws negative connotations at Barcelona. It's also one which has become synonymous with Ernesto Valverde's side this season. In 29 league games, Barca have conceded just 13 goals and one of their biggest strengths has been their ability to keep their shape and see out spells of pressure while minimising the quality of their opponent's chances. The latest example, the second half of the recent one-goal win against Atletico Madrid.

Even the Catalan media, spoiled by...
