This past summer, Samuel Umtiti left clear that did not go to go losing money and decided to remain in the FC Barcelona​​​​. The French was one of the descartes that there was distinguished Joan Laporta, but in spite of this, got obsessed with to follow and show that has level to play Barça. Thus, the Frenchman worked more than ever during the holidays to be able to arrive to the pre-season in the best possible form, something that seemed to achieve.

However, in spite of everything, since it began the season 'Big Sam' has not premièred neither in League neither in Champions League. The frank-Cameroonian does not explain at all for his trainer, that has left clear that Ronald Araújo and Gerard Hammered are the headlines, Eric the main alternative to both and Clément Lenglet the fourth defender. Óscar Mingueza is the joker for the centre of the saga and the side and the Frenchman is, therefore, the last of the row.

It is by this by what the Barcelona wants to give him exit what before, since his wage, in spite of the discount, does not correspond with his marginal paper in the team. Thus, the Catalans will try that it leave in winter, something that will not be at all easy. Nevertheless, in the entity also would contemplate that in 2022, fed up of not having minutes, was the own footballer the one who ask to leave.

In this sense, 'Sportive World' ensures that the central could receive to a clause of the FIFA to go out free of the Barça. The article in question would be the 18.3 of the Regulation on the Statute and Transfer of players, that says the following: "A professional player that in the course of a season participate in less than the 10 % of the official parties contested by his club can terminate prematurely his agreement arguing sportive cause justified. In the examination of these cases, will consider properly the circumstances of the player. The existence of a sportive cause justified will establish individually in each case".

This article also says that in case that it free him of his agreement for playing less than 10% of the meetings of his team, the footballer in question will have to pay a compensation to his club. "In such a case, they will not impose sportive sanctions, although it will be able to demand compensation. A professional player will be able to terminate his agreement on this base in the 15 following days to his last official party of the season with the club in which it is inscribed", indicates.

Little likely that Umtiti receive to this article

Taking into account all this, Umtiti could ask his freedom in case that Koeman follow without giving him options this campaign. Nevertheless, it fits to say that it is little likely that this suceda, since in 2022 will go in in his last year of agreement, by what the Barcelona will put him all the eases of the world to leave him go out. But in spite of this, suits to remember this clause by what can occur.
