“I think that the right moment has arrived to leave. I think that this summer I will need a change of scenery and discover something else, still with the idea of advancing and progressing in terms of football and as a person. I will continue to work, in the hope that good opportunities will come this summer. Barcelona to join Umtiti? It is a very big club. They have extraterrestrials upfront. It would be a dream… If that happens, great, but I am not here to say that I will take a place from Luis Suarez. But I would like to play for them one day.”
Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas has confirmed that he has rejected multiple offers for Alexandre Lacazette last summer, the largest being a €40m (£31m) bid from West Ham he alleged.
