Samuel Umtiti was one of the footballers called to remain in the Barça during a lot of years, but right now his future is an incógnita. From his arrival to the Camp Nou, the French showed to be the central that so many years carried looking for the entity barcelonista. It settled in the centre of the defence beside Gerard Hammered from the first day and, little by little, finish turning into one of the best of the world.

In the 2017, the Frenchman was fashionable and all the Barcelona fans celebrated his signing a year before. It was a fast defender, with very good deal of balloon and with good capacity to anticipate to the played of the contrary. His rapport with Hammered was total and at all did to think that the knee went to be able to truncate his career in the Barça. Finally, after the World-wide of 2018, this injury separated him of the titularity and carries giving bandazos since.

To day of today, Clément Lenglet​ has gone through him the right and is the central headline of the group culé with all merecimiento. The ex sevillista carries a year and half to a fantastic level and seems that it is the option that the Barça has chosen on a long-term basis. Umtiti Is his acting, but he wants to play more and therefore it could go out in summer.

In an interview to Futbolmanía TV that collects Europe Press, the French recognises that it would love him finish his career in the Barça, but that it wants to play, be important and win titles. "Never it knows , it can be, I do not know it. It would love me, it would like me finish my career here in the Barça but well, am young, eh? Have time and have to play, play and play and win titles", admitted.

With these words, the ex of the Olympique of Lyon opens the door to his course of the Barcelona if it does not have more opportunities to play. The true is that the injuries have prevented him can surrender with normality this last year and half, but when it has been available neither has explained too much for Ernesto Valverde. This alone course has played three parties and in two has been only by absences forced of Hammered or Lenglet.

If it does not have patience, could go out in summer

In the interview, the defender insists that in Barcelona is very happy and that would like him follow, but for this wants to have more minutes and parties. The way to achieve that the 'Txingurri' change of opinion regarding him is to keep fit, no recaer of the injuries and expect his opportunity. If it does not have patience, perhaps finish going out in the market of summer and the Barça look for to another central in his place.
