It appears that Samuel Umtiti will leave Barcelona this summer. Although the exact formula is still unknown, it appears most likely that it will involve a loan with a buyout option. He signed a contract with Barcelona this year that keeps him there through 2026 in exchange for helping Ferran Torres register.

Rennes, who are negotiating for the French center-back, are one of the teams most interested. The Barcelona player has piqued the interest of coach Bruno Genesio.

Genesio said, “He’s a player we know very well. “I had him when he was developing, and then I had him in Lyon’s first team, and that makes a connection. You are all familiar with his background, his strengths, and the setbacks he experienced last year, but he is still a very high-level player, and we are interested in players with high levels.

Umtiti is permitted to skip the team’s opening preseason workouts as he works on a new contract.
