The season 2018-19 has not been at all easy for Samuel Umtiti, that starts a summer agitated but does not want to hear speak of signings. After moving away the doubts of the injuries, the goodbye of the Frenchman to the FC Barcelona is not descartado, but in the last weeks has cooled his possible exit and the market will dictate sentence. One of his big beaux has it difficult to certify his contracting.

In England keep that Unai Emery follows dreaming with carrying to the French to the Arsenal, that has trusted to the Gipuzkoan his new project and wants to advance in his battle with the big clubs of the Premier League.

It does some months already confirmed that Denis Suárez was an impossible wish, and seems that now it will go back to occur.

In these circumstances, in London already look for alternatives to Umtiti, and observe with attention to Dayot Upamecano. The youngster, that is a member of the Leipzig and also is in the diary barcelonista, finish agreement in 2021, and as it does not decide to renew could agree an exit to time, with which the Germans would pretend to ensure some profits with his traspaso.

Although they were not signalled like prioritarias, the Barça had posed the sales of some stars, that for the time being are far to concretise . Further of descartes like André Gomes or Denis Suárez, footballers like Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti have big poster in Europe, but his refusal to change of airs could do that the income look for with other businesses in the window estival.
