Samuel Umtiti does not raise head in the FC Barcelona​ and carries more than two years and half in a dark tunnel of the that seems that it does not go to attain go out. The French, that wanted to show in this 2021 that has place in the staff, has not explained practically at all for Ronald Koeman​​ and when it has done it has not given a big level. Of the last twelve meetings of the Barça in League contested only three and in total this course played 16 between all the competitions.

By all this, seems that the time of the French in Barcelona has exhausted , the same that his credit. Since it arrived Joan Laporta to the presidency, is one of the firm candidates to abandon the Barcelona discipline this summer. The intention of the club always has been to do box with him to undo of his toxic wage, that is very above his current value in the staff. Nevertheless, the reality is that so that it go could be necessary almost give him or yield him.

In these moments, as they have informed in several sportive means, the Barça is negotiating the cession of the defender. Olympique Of Marseilles and Olympique of Lyon are interested in him and both could be had to pay part of his very high wage. Still there is not at all confirmed, but is likely that the culés follow having to pay a part of the wage of 'Big Sam', unless the footballer accept to recess it.

However, it seems that Umtiti no only is not had to win less, but as they affirm in the newspaper 'L'Instrument' not even will accept to leave the Barcelona. In France ensure that although the entity barcelonista is trying to plant to the defender in Tie it 1, the frank-Cameroonian only thinks in arriving the more in shape possible to the pre-season to convince to Koeman and recover his place.

The one of Yaoundé has agreement until 2023, by what theoretically is the one who has the frying pan by the mango. Unless it accept, the Barça will not be able to give him exit, by what if it is true that does not want to go, the club has work by in front to convince him of the contrary. However, the time constrains and the culés need to lighten the staff and recess his mass salarial what before, by what from the Camp Nou will have to hurry.

Umtiti, the last option of the Barça for the centre of the saga

One of the arguments that could do that the French change of opinion is the 'overbooking' that there is in the centre of the Barcelona defence. With the arrival of Eric García and the renewal of Óscar Mingueza, in these moments there are six head offices in the first staff of the Catalans. In addition to them and of Umtiti, Gerard Hammered, Ronald Araújo and Clément Lenglet also compete by a place. Knowing this, from the club will try to do him see to the Frenchman that is the last option and that if it remains will happen all the campaign in the terracing.
