Barcelona & Lyon finalise fee agreement for Samuel Umtiti

Barcelona and Lyon have finalised a fee agreement for the transfer of French international Samuel Umtiti worth €30m in total, according to Eurosport and L’Équipe.

Lyon could announce the deal tomorrow evening, ahead of the auditing of their accounts.

Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas has confirmed that the player has been told that he will be allowed to join Barcelona, the supposed club of his dreams, even if Umtiti has yet to finalise personal terms with the Catalan giants.

The move is a fantastic one for one of Europe’s most talented and highly coveted central defensive talents.
