Samuel Umtiti is always in the pools to leave Barça. It was last summer and will be in this again if it does not improve its performance. It seems that Inter is seeking competition from Godin and the Frenchman would like it
It does a lot that Samuel Umtiti does not shine in the FC Barcelona. The French has recovered physically of his injury of knee, but has not gone back to recover the level that did him be between the best head offices of the world. Ernesto Valverde him relegó to a clear flat second giving him the titularity to Clément Lenglet, but the arrival to the bench of Quique Setién could do that the situation of the ex of the Olympique of Lyon change to better.
The Cantabrian trainer has given him already two titularities since it did charge of the team. The first was in his première, in front of the Granada, and the second against the Valency in the painful defeat of Mestalla. In this meeting, the Frenchman did waters beside the rest of the defence barcelonista and this caused that Setién threw of Lenglet to play in front of the Leganés this past Thursday. The ex sevillista was of the most stood out of the Barça and even marked a goal, something that could go back to condemn to Umtiti.
To fault to know the paper that will give him the santanderino in the months that subtract, in Europe already speaks of the future of the defender culé. As 'TuttoMercatoWeb', the Inter of Milan will go to by him in June to reinforce his defence. Antonio Conte would not be of the all satisfied with the performance of Diego Godín in his system of three head offices and therefore it would look for alternatives in the market.
Umtiti Has agreement with the group barcelonista until June of 2023, by what the Barça will have to give his seen well to his exit. The Barcelona do not have any intention to give to the defender although it was not in his best moment, by what arrived the case the 'neroazzurro' will have to do a substantial offer if for real they want to to the French. A defensive line formed by Skriniar, Of Vrij and Godín or Umtiti would be definitely one of the best of the world.
The Arsenal would have done him an offer this winter
But the rumours about the figure of the international 'bleu' do not remain here and also have planted him in the Premier League. As 'Him Parisien', the defender of the Barcelona would have received an offer to go to the Arsenal in this same wintry market. He same would have refused it because it follows trusting can go back to be the 'Big Sam' of before and recover his place and his role in the eleven.
Mikel Arteta, new trainer 'gunner', would have asked on purpose the signing of the French, but would have received the "no". The Barça, by his part, seems that only it would pose the sale of Umtiti if it arrived a big offer by him. Perhaps, if Setién gives him minutes, the defender recover part of his level and the blaugrana receive this big proposal that do them traspasarle.
