Barcelona release defender Samuel Umtiti from contract
Barcelona have reached agreement with defender Samuel Umtiti (29) to terminate his contract, the Spanish champions said on Friday.
The France international joined Barca from Lyon in 2016 and had three years left on his contract.
He suffered a series of injuries after helping France win the 2018 World Cup and spent last season on loan at Serie A side Lecce.
Umtiti played 133 times for Barcelona, winning three Copa del Rey trophies, two LaLiga titles and two domestic super cups.
