Manchester City reportedly consider paying Umtiti's release clause

Barcelona found out last summer with the loss of Neymar that transfer market inflation has brought some of their once-prohibitive release clauses into reach, and they now face losing Samuel Umtiti too.
Before his injury, the French centre-back was one of the standout performers of Barcelona' 2017/18 season, but Manchester City are reportedly considering paying his release clause of 60 million euros.
That's according to French daily L'Equipe, who consider it "feasible" that he could end up at the Etihad.
The only way of upping the 23-year-old's clause is by renewing and improving his contract.
