The FC Barcelona already does months that goes behind Matthijs of Ligt and the big intention of the Barcelona club is to sign to the Dutch defence this same summer. If the captain of the Ajax finish arriving, will not do it to be acting and will want to have opportunities, by what will generate an important competition in the position of central defence.

By this reason, several sectors of the press aimed that Samuel Umtiti was an important candidate to abandon the FC Barcelona the next season, since during the last months hardly has been able to play by fault of an injury of knee of which did not want to operate to follow a conservative treatment.

But in the present campaign has lost weight in the team and, with his injury, only has been able to play 15 parties.
