Samuel Umtiti is one of the players on the starting ramp and Joan Laporta wants him to leave this summer. The Frenchman's salary is very high, the club wants to get rid of him and Koeman is doing his part to achieve it

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Samuel Umtiti does not raise head in the FC Barcelona​ and carries more than two years and half in a dark tunnel of the that seems that it does not go to attain go out. The French, that wanted to show in this 2021 that has place in the Barça, is not explaining absolutely at all for Ronald Koeman these last weeks. His last party was does more than a month, on 6 March, against Osasuna, and gives the impression that the thing does not go to change.

The Dutch trainer does not trust too much in him, as it has left clear this campaign, and has in more esteem to any one of his others central, including to Óscar Mingueza. The canterano has been headline in front of the absences by injury of Ronald Araújo and Gerard Hammered, whereas 'Big Sam' has seen all the meetings from the bench. In fact, even Frenkie of Jong has gone through him the right playing in the line of three head offices.

But that the frank-Cameroonian was in the darkest of the ostracisms is not casualidad as 'CuléMania'. This web ensures that all treats of a plan designed by Joan Laporta in which Koeman agrees. The president wants to undo of the toxic agreement of Umtiti this summer and thinks that it is necessary to do all the possible so that the Frenchman ask to go out or at least do not put fetters to his exit.

The plan would consist in leaving him in the terracing week after week until final of campaign so that it tire and see with better eyes his course. The technician does not have problems in following these indications, as it is showing, and only 'will throw' of him in case of extreme need. Only in case of not having more defences will use to the of Yaoundé this course, something that seems complicated taking into account that Araújo already is to 100% and Hammered every time is better.

Leaving to Umtiti without minutes looks for facilitate his course, since up to now the player has denied to go out not to lose his sueldazo. It comments that it is winning some 10 or 12 million annual euros after his renewal in 2018 until 2023. Then it was one of the best head offices of the world and could deserve it, but now this is a very toxic agreement and he is a player that no longer gives the level that demands him to a defender of elite.

The Barça wants to that Umtiti go in in reason

It will be necessary to see how seats him to 'Big Sam' all this, since to his 27 years, although physically no longer was the one of before, still could relanzar his career in another club with fewer aspirations. This is what the club wants that it understand the defender so that it access to go out although it lose money. It contemplates a traspaso by a quantity no very high, a cession or even give him the letter of freedom if it forgives an important part of the wage that remains him for earning.
