The FC Barcelona is still in full reform of his staff, and is slope of a long list of high and low. The Catalans expect to reinforce with several world-wide stars and could give exit to some of his cracks, although they have put firm with the sales and the intention is that those that leave do it to a suitable price. In the Camp Nou do not want to do more 'gifts'.

One of the pending cases is the one of Samuel Umtiti, that in principle will not move of the City Condal but is expecting of novelties. The central has repeated in diverse occasions that his will is to continue dressing of Barcelona, but if there are doubts on the state of his maltrecha knee or need extra income to square the balances, the club could pose his goodbye.

In England are very attentive to the future of the champion of the world, and there are two clearly interested groups. The British press carries months insisting in that some of his big teams have called to the door of the ex of the Olympique of Lyon, and there is a willing pair to play with the times and apurar his options to hire to the defender. 

Manchester United and Arsenal would be to the threaten of his opportunity by the Frenchman, although it will not be a simple question. The 'network devils' would have contacted already with the entity culé and would have carried a 'no' like answer, and the 'gunners' could be victims of his own planning. In the Emirates Stadium exists a capital challenge for this window estival.

The budget of the londinenses is very limited, what would hamper an attractive offer to tie to the of Yaundé. In spite of that Unai Emery ensured that the aim was to consolidate a competitive staff and go back to be in the Champions, will not allocate more than 50 million euros to incorporations -more what take out in sales-, precisely the same value that rondaría the defence. Play it everything to a letter is impossible and the Barça would not accept discounts, by what will be difficult to see to Umtiti dressed of red and white.

The PSG keeps like alternative for Umtiti

Although it is an operation that has to mature with the step of the weeks, Umtiti himself keeps like alternative in the signing of Neymar. The Barça works to recover to the Brazilian and the PSG is looking for reinforcements for the axis of the saga, what would open the door to that in the exchange that already would star Philippe Coutinho also went in the French, that would go back to his country by the big door.
