The French defender Samuel Umtiti would have showed his intention to recess his wage with the entity culé if he ensures him his permanence with the club in the next seasons
This Tuesday was a 'crucial day' to reach an advance in the negotiations of the club with the players, with the aim to concretise an agreement for the discount of the wages. For this informed that during this day would carry out a meeting between all the parts and expected that in the course of this Wednesday already had an answer on the acceptance or negative of a readjustment in the floors. If the refusal of the changing room continues, as it seems that like this it will be, the club could begin to gather individually with each player of the first staff.
However, one of the footballers that would be interested in renegotiating with the group culé is the French defender Samuel Umtiti. This central comes to be planted like transferible by the Barcelona entity in the last market of signings because it is not a defence of the like of Ronald Koeman. Nevertheless, according to some Catalan means, the defender would see positively a discount salarial in return of a renewal of his agreement, as already they have done it with other players (Frenkie of Jong, Marc-André Ter Stegen, Clément Lenglet and Gerard Hammered).
This proposal would not be very very received by the Catalan directive, as when seeming the intention with the player keeps on being the same (sell it), since in the last seasons has had very little participation because of his constant physical problems that have done him lose leadership with the first team. Besides, his extension of agreement is not something that would gladden to Koeman because the Frenchman does not fulfil with the profile of defender that wants in his team.
On the other hand, it seems very safe that the Barcelona will look for to give him gone out to this player in the next market of winter, but only if it receives a near offer to the current value of defender (20 million euros); a money that could be used in the purchase of the Spanish Eric García, the one who is a player that can give him a lot of greater clean exit to the club blaugrana.
Has agreement until 2023
The central French arrived in the season 2016/17 from the Olympique of Lyon, in a traspaso that cost 25 million euros. In his first season in the Barcelona club showed to be a player with a lot of physical power and intelligence to the hour to advance line. These performances carried it to achieve a renewal of his agreement in summer of 2018, before contesting the world-wide of Russia; one that links it with the entity blaugrana until the 2023. This is another of the reasons by which the club culé would not be had to lengthen the agreement, as it would be descabellado take a decision like this with a player that in the two last seasons has not had almost participation with the first team.
