Samuel Umtiti could leave Barcelona for Italy this week after Serie A club Lecce expressed interest in the defender, per Tuttomercato (h/t Diario Sport).

Lecce are willing to pay 50 per cent of Umtiti’s salary this season, with Barca paying the rest.

What it means is that the move will only be a loan deal and the Frenchman will be back at Camp Nou next season.
