To date and with the aim to reduce drastically the mass salarial of the first team, the FC Barcelona has confirmed the goodbye of several important players like Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Nélson Semedo or Luis Suárez, but remains a pending case to resolve: the one of Samuel Umtiti. Ronald Koeman already communicated him that it does not have he but, until the moment, has not concretised an exit more than necessary.

To contextualise this delicate situation it is necessary to remember that, in summer of 2016, the central French arrived to the FC pertinent Barcelona of the Olympique of Lyon like a promise of big potential and did not take in dazzling with a formidable level. Nevertheless, in 2018 it began to suffer problems in his knees and denied to be taken part quirúrgicamente by fear to lose the World-wide of Russia.

The best moments of Umtiti with the Barça

After this mishap, never went back to be the same: it has lost a big quantity of parties by problems derived of this injury and his level when it has played has been very underneath of the expectations. The big problem of the FC Barcelona was that, few weeks before the player suffered this physical mishap, had been renewed upward for elever his clause of rescission and avoid his 'escape'.

This agreement is of some eight million annual euros and, to day of today, supposes an enormous problem so that the FC Barcelona can sell him after the decision of Ronald Koeman of not having he. To date, any team has bid with a serious offer by Samuel Umtiti, since anybody wants to risk to pay by a player that carries several seasons without being profitable.

It is true that, until the moment, the FC Barcelona has achieved to rid of the payment of around some 70 million euros in index cards with the exit of the previously mentioned players but, in spite of this, needs to give off of Samuel Umtiti that it is the seventh better paid of the staff but that, if it is still in the Camp Nou, will not play neither a minute.

Samuel Umtiti, splits of the payment by Memphis Depay?

The FC Barcelona needs to round his 'operation gone out' with the exit of Samuel Umtiti, that would suppose a total saving of more than 12 million euros for the club. Simultaneously, the club also works in the signing of Memphis Depay, that plays in the Olympique of Lyon. The French club is the one who sold to Umtiti to the FC Barcelona and could be interested in his turn, as they ensure from France. A barter would be the round business for the Catalan entity.
