According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Lazio is interested in the services of Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.
Umtiti only featured in 18 games for Barcelona this season (all competitions) due to injury problems. The centre-back’s contract expires in 2023, but the Catalan club is not willing to keep the Frenchman on their shoulders until then. Earlier reports claimed that Umtiti will leave at the end of the season, and currently, the best solution seems that he will move to Serie A.
Lazio’s only fear is that Umtiti’s price tag could be around €20-€25 million, which they would be unable to pay currently due to the financial crisis caused by the Coronavirus. But if Lazio is unable to complete a transfer, Barça might even agree on a loan deal.
Ansu Fati becomes La Liga top-scorer in less than 90 minutes played
Ansu Fati has done it again. The 17-year-old scored the opening goal away against Celta Vigo in the 11th minute of the game. After his brace last week, the young talent continues to surprise, and has now become top-scorer in La Liga in less than a total of 90 minutes played.
Having said that, Fati has become the 3rd youngest player in history to reach 10 La Liga goals (with Bojan 85 days younger, and Pombo 92). Last week, Ansu already broke two new records, and it seems that week after week, he will continue to break more.
We can clearly say that Ansu Fati’s era is here. For a long time, the Catalan club has been looking for a lethal winger, capable of scoring a fair amount of goals every season. Lionel Messi was the player with all the attacking weight on his shoulders, but starting from this season, things might finally change.
