Inter Milan may sign Samuel Umtiti this summer
After a few years in the wilderness, Samuel Umtiti is finally revitalising his career with FC Barcelona. After a good start with the Blaugrana, the Frenchman was once regarded as one of the best defenders in the world. However, fitness difficulties plagued him year after year, and he was reduced to a supporting role for Barcelona. Last summer, Barcelona chose to address the Umtiti issue by loaning him to Lecce. And the 29-year-old has rekindled his career with the Serie A club, appearing 21 times this season. However, the player has no future with Barcelona, who will attempt to transfer him this summer. And such a situation caught Inter Milan’s interest.
The Serie A heavyweights are in a dilemma over the fate of many players. This is due to the fact that Milan Skriniar and Stefan de Vrij are nearing the end of their Inter Milan contracts. Skriniar might leave the Nerazzurri camp as a free agent during the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, de Vrij’s future remains uncertain, despite the possibility of a new contract. Nonetheless, numerous reports have linked the Dutchman to a number of clubs.
Umtiti’s performance has attracted Nerazzurri
As a result, Inter Milan must scan the market for potential remedies to fix any central defensive concerns that may arise. As a result, Umtiti has emerged as a possible target for the Nerazzurri. After an undoubtedly successful tenure at Lecce, the 29-year-old is already well-established in Serie A. He should also enjoy Simone Inzaghi’s system at San Siro. With Barcelona unlikely to protest to Umtiti’s sale, a summer transfer appears to be in the cards.
However, several Serie A teams, including AC Milan, have expressed interest in the 29-year-old French centre-back. It would be intriguing to see if Inter Milan can outbid the competition for the Barcelona defender during the summer transfer window.
