Umtiti to stay put with Barcelona
Football Transfer Centre

France international Samuel Umtiti has reportedly decided to fight for his position at Barcelona amid interest from the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal.

The centre-back sustained a number of injury concerns during the early part of the season and this has meant that he has been restricted to just 15 appearances for the campaign.

Due to this, there have been suggestions that he could pursue a fresh challenge with the Blaugrana's interest in Matthijs de Ligt but it appears that he has no plans of parting ways with the club.

According to Mundo Deportivo, both United and Arsenal have been linked with possible moves for the Frenchman but that may not necessarily materialise into an agreement with the defender.

It is added that Umtiti is prepared to stick with the Spanish champions despite the reduced gametime and he is unlikely to push through an exit this summer.

Umtiti has four years remaining on his current deal with Barcelona.
