Umtiti begins to give way

The center-back, according to Sport, is already considering going out on loan. It is not the solution that Barça wants, but it is the one that would allow, in the short term, to lighten the salary mass of the staff.


According to Sport published this Thursday, Samuel Umtiti begins to give in and could accept an exit even in the form of a loan. The Frenchman, who had so far maintained a tough and uncompromising stance and had shown his intention to fulfill the contract and to convince Koeman on the field that his knee is fit again, is no longer totally inflexible.

Barça has been looking for a way out for Umtiti for two summers. Last season he tried with all his might, very annoyed as he was by the attitude of the central at the end of the 2019-20 season, when he got off the boat before the last days of the League and the Champions League matches against Naples and Bayern. That, not to mention his chronic problems in his left knee. Although it was rumored that his name had been on the table of PSG and Olympique de Lyon, his departure did not materialize.

Barça is aware that it is difficult to get money for the French and transfer it, so that the transfer would be considered a good solution in the short term, since it would free the Barça club of its burdensome record ..., as long as there is a club that he wants to pay it in full or the central world champion agrees to charge less. The central position in the defense of Barça is covered with Eric Garcia, Piqué, Araújo, Lenglet and Mingueza.
