The former Lyon star has formed a solid defensive partnership with Gerard Pique at the centre of the Barcelona defence and the Catalan giants believe it will tough for them to find a replacement.
“It’s clear that I want to renew at Barca and I hope to be in the team next season.”
“I’m at a club that has helped me realise my dream. I have a contract and for me to go they will have to kick me out, I will not decide to leave,” Umtiti told L’Equipe.
The coming week will be a decisive one the transfer saga front as Griezmann is set to make that decision public.
It does, though, remain to be seen how he fits in with Ernesto Valverde’s plans.
Barcelona are on the lookout for a new back-up goalkeeper this summer as Jasper Cillessen seeks a move away from Camp Nou.
The experienced former Ajax star, who has spent two years with Blaugrauna, has grown frustrated at his lack of game time due to Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s performances between the sticks.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool have shown interest in Cillessen’s signature while Marca reports that Barca have already started their search for a new shot-stopper.
Netherlands star Cillessen did feature eleven times this past season and would reportedly be available for around €30m.
