The FC Barcelona has launched an official communiqué, in the last hours, with which has informed that Samuel Umtiti no longer suffers coronavirus and that, therefore, already is available to go back to exercise again beside the rest of his mates. "The player of the first team Samuel Umtiti has received the high doctor of his infection by Covid-19", prays the informative note of the Barça.

The future of Samuel Umtiti is still a mystery, but for now the central French will incorporate of progressive form to the trainings, exercising first in solitary as they did Leo Messi and Coutinho the Monday and theTuesday , and afterwards making already the exercises at the side of his mates, always in function of which was his physical tone.

The most likely is that the Barça try to include to Umtiti in some operation before it finish the summer, presumably in the one of the hypothetical signing of Memphis Depay with the Olympique of Lyon. The initial idea of 'Big Sam' always has been the one to remain in the Barcelona team and struggle by the titularity once have solved his physical problems, without relapses.

The Barça, in this sense, will have to convince him of the option to do the cases to return to the that went his team during six seasons, something that would do illusion to Umtiti but that, partly, could be considered by his part like a step backwards in his sportive career.

It has lost the confidence in Umtiti

In the breast of the Catalan entity do not think that Umtiti have much more visited in the Barça, to the have not surrendered to the level expected when it has been on the lawn in the two last campaigns, and have happened the half of each one of them in the infirmary.

Not even the fans culé bet by his continuity, and very high wage is an obstacle so that the Barcelona can sign to other young players, of talent and greater projection in defensive positions. We will see if the Barça kills two birds of a shot in the 'Operation Depay' or if, by against, Umtiti gives the surprise and finish forming part of the staff culé of face to the next season 2020-21.
