The Barça will have problems to complete successfully the operation gone out, in this market of signings. Jean-Michel Classrooms, president of the Olympique of Lyon, in his statements for 'Channel+', ensured, of cutting form, that Samuel Umtiti will not be player of the French team. Also it took advantage of to signal that, to his offices, still has not arrived any offer by Memphis Depay.

During the last days of this period of traspasos estival, commented the possible option to incorporate to the central French in the operation by Memphis, for abaratarla, in a species of barter more money. But the president of the club has been clear, will not arrive Samuel Umtiti, by what the hopes that the Dutch forward arrive to Barcelona are quite remote.

Paradoxically, the main problem that has the Lyon with the traspaso of the central Frenchman is the same reason by which the entity blaugrana wants to undo of him: his index card. The wage of the footballer is very high, and more if has to three head offices by in front, that are Gerard Hammered, Clement Lenglet and Ronald Araújo, waiting for that it can arrive Eric García.

The central defence is the last of the operations that the club had to do to recess the effort of the entity blaugrana to pay wages. After the exits of Ivan Rakitic, to the Seville; Arturo Vidal, to the Inter of Milan; Luis Suárez, to the Athletic of Madrid and Nelson Semedo, to the Wolverhampton, Samuel Umtiti will not be the following after the rejection of the OL.

Samuel Umtiti will remain in the FC Barcelona

Taking into account that the negotiations with the Olympique of Lyon were the only that were keeping to give him exit to the French footballer, now that they have withdrawn , Umtiti does not have any possible exit. Probably, it will be still in the Camp Nou a year more, although with a little important role and with few opportunities to participate.

To all this, adds the interest of the FC Barcelona by Eric García, player of the Manchester City. After confirming the barter more money of Ruben Dias by Nicolás Otamendi, the English team has reinforced entirely his defensive line and could begin to pose the exit of the young canterano of the Barça. To arrive to the Camp Nou, the team culé would have 5 head offices.
