Barcelona offers to release their two Stars as they attempt to slash wage bill.

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 2021/2022 squad. 31 year-old pjanic joined from Juventus last season in a deal worth €60million (£55m/$67m) but started only six of the 13 La-liga games he played last season.

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

Goal.com has revealed that Barcelona want to offload the pair this summer, but their departure will not prove so easy. The camp nou side will have to pay them off, pjanic has three years left on his contract and two years remains for Samuel umtiti.
