Samuel Umtiti is one of the most repeated names in the FC Barcelona, but from does a time, by the wrong reasons. This version of the French is very far of the footballer that marvelled at all more arrive of the Olympique of Lyon, since the injuries have separated him of the titularity and even of the bench, sumiéndole in an ordeal to the that does not attain to put end.

The last physical problem of the Frenchman will force to the club and to the player to take decisions, because the situation does months that brushes the unsustainable. The one of Yaundé left clear along the summer that does not want to abandon the Camp Nou, but if his performance, and especially, his fragility do not improve, will be condemned to a sale that the entity poses by the very common, since it would lighten the mass salarial of the staff -did an effort to renew him- and would allow to have an active smart for any challenge.

While the central fight by his career, the azugrana already study a possible spare. Fortunately, they moved with celerity and tarpaulin in the window estival of 2018, and did with the services of Clément Lenglet that to his 24 years has showed spare that is qualified to be a referent in the retaguardia barcelonista and also in the one of the selection, in which it has collected equally the witness of his compatriot.

In addition to the signings, also observes carefully to several perlas of the filial, so much those that come from of the Masia like which arrived does less time, and that have adapted with rapidity to the requirements of the Barça. Ernesto Valverde already tested to Chumi (20 years) in the first team, Ronald Araújo (20 years) is consolidating with Francisco Javier García Pepper and Jorge Cuenca (19 years), a left-handed specialist like Umtiti, also shines in the Miniestadi and in the inferior category of the Spanish selection.

The summer 2020 will be key for the future of Umtiti

Although after his last and fallida wintry adventure, is difficult that the Barça pose some contracting to half season, the summer 2020 aims to key moment to define the future of Umtiti. The French will fulfil 26 years próximamente and could have a long and successful career, but right now there are a lot of doubts on if it will be in the City Condal. Recover his level has to be his priority, and if it does not do it prompt, could lose the train of the Barcelona.
