Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has been talking about summer speculation that saw him linked with Arsenal and PSG and finds the whole thing pretty amusing.

The centre-back had a difficult campaign last season. He missed large chunks due to injury and was then benched by Clement Lenglet.

However, Umtiti says he never considered leaving the Camp Nou and was surprised to see rumors of a move to Arsenal emerge.

“Honestly, I don’t know where this rumour with Arsenal came from,” he said. “Overnight, I received messages from my friends ‘ah, so you are joining Arsenal?’ I’m not, I’m sorry but I’m staying at Barcelona.
