Barcelona offer to release Pjanic and Umtiti as they attempt to slash wage bill


The midfielder and defender each made just 13 appearances in La Liga last season and will not play a big role next season either

Barcelona have offered to release Miralem Pjanic and Samuel Umtiti from their contracts, Goal understands, as the midfielder and defender do not fit into Ronald Koeman's plans for the future.

Pjanic, 31, joined from Juventus last summer in a deal worth €60 million (£55m/$67m) but started only six of the 13 Liga games in which he featured last season.

Umtiti meanwhile has not been able to hold on to a place in the starting XI since arriving from Lyon five years ago and was also limited to just 13 league matches in 2020-21.
