Now it is time to negotiate with the club, asking for between 30 and 33 million euros for the player
Olympique Lyonnais' defender, Samuel Umtiti, reached an agreement with Barça on Friday, according to the French newspaper Le Dauphiné Libéré. The medium quotes an information that links the entourage and the player's representatives in a meeting, on Friday the 10th in Lyon, to settle the last details of the contract. The 'yes' from the defender was already effective at the start of the week.
Now that the agreement is sealed with the player, the hardest part is yet to come: negotiations with president Jean-Michel Aulas, who wants to get the maximum amount out of the transfer. From the 20-25 million euros at first, we have now reached 30-33 million euros. With that money, the club hopes to secure Alexandre Lacazette's future, as the star striker of the team.
