Calendar of FC Barcelona

From it does years, Paris Saint-Germain is nicknamed like the 'prison of gold' been due to his way to manage his agreements with the footballers: first it convinces them to abandon his respective clubs of origin with agreements multimillionaires and later denies to negotiate under any circumstance if the player in question wishes to change of airs. Like this sucedió with Marco Verratti, Ángel Gave María, Neymar, Kylian Mbappé...

But, of course, this fault of ethical in his 'modus operandi' can begin to happen bill from already same. Some important players of the group of the French capital finish agreement the next month of June and, by the moment, all they have refused to renew. It is the case of Edinson Cavani or of Layvin Kurzawa, Thomas Meunier or Thiago Silva in defence.

Precisely this desbandada that will have the picture of Thomas Tuchel in his retaguardia will force to look for reinforcements of level in these positions. Especially in the case of the relief of the last that mentioned, Thiago Silva, a player that carries a lot of years being key in Paris Saint-Germain and that, to his 35 years, seems totally had to force his exit refusing the proposals of renewal that arrive him.

Leonardo, sportive director of the current champion of Tie it 1, seems that would have his aim in the FC Barcelona in case that the course of his Brazilian compatriot consummates : Samuel Umtiti. Several sectors of the national and international press have done quotation during the last weeks about the interest of the Parisians in the Barcelona head office, that would help also to the mission of 'nationalisation' of the staff that have in Paris, looking for complete the staff​ with greater French presence.

Nevertheless, Paris Saint-Germain goes to have to work a lot if it wants to can have Umtiti in a future since, by the moment, the central frank-Cameroonian has not left doubts regarding his intention to follow dressing of Barcelona. The Barça, by his part, yes would be had to listen offers by the defence in case that they surpassed the 30 million euros.

In the 'operation Neymar'?

Another option that would contemplate the FC Barcelona would be that Umtiti formed part of the payment of the traspaso of Neymar, since the Brazilian is objective prioritario for the sportive direction culé. By the moment, Paris Saint-Germain has denied always in rotundo to negotiate by the Brazilian, but if the player presiona and the Barça makes a succulent proposal, at all is impossible.
