Reports: Barca Choose Umtiti Replacement

It is believed that Spanish giants FC Barcelona have chosen who they will replace defender Samuel Umtiti with in the next transfer window, amid rumours he could leave for one of the biggest clubs in England.

The Frenchman is yet to be offered a new deal by the Catalan giants, and currently has a release clause of just £52 million (R864 million).

Manchester United are reportedly after the France international, and while Umtiti is a key figure for the Blaugrana, Spanish media have speculated that there is a big possibility they could lose his services.

According to Sport, the Spanish side has already begun looking for someone who can replace Umtiti if he does decide to move on.

The club's board apparently feels Sevilla centre back Clement Lenglet would be perfect for the role as they have been impressed with his performances this season.

The 22-year-old Frenchman has become a regular fixture in Vincenzo Montella's side, and gained massive plaudits for his displays against Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 earlier this year.

It has also been claimed that Lenglet has a release clause of just £26 million (R432 million), a figure that Barca feel represents great value.

Lenglet has played 45 times for Sevilla so far this season, scoring four goals along the way.

Do you think Lenglet has what it takes to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world? Let us know in the comments section below.
