Umtiti, in the spotlight

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,848

Samuel Umtiti's physical state is a real headache for FC Barcelona. The centre-back seems to be improving, but Camp Nou's patience is running out.

His first two seasons at Barcelona (2016/17 and 2017/18) and his great World Cup at Russia made Samuel Umtiti become known as one of the best centre-backs in the world.

In fact, the Frenchman was Barcelona's best defender, but since this summer he has not stopped being affected by physical problems. 

The start of the 2018-19 campaign began to show what was to come at the Camp Nou. Since September of this year, Umtiti has not played in any two games consecutively.

His fear of the operating room and his reliance on other treatments has made the central suffer from knee problems for more than a year.

As shown by 'Sport', Barcelona's worry and the worry of their medical team is at an all-time high.

The club have done everything they can for Umtiti, but the information states that their patience could be about to run out.

Already last summer, he was rumoured to leave the club, but in the end, there were no firm offers for the Frenchman.

Whether or not he leaves the club, his future could be more than compromised, because the Barcelona team could go for a renowned centre-back for the next academic year if Umtiti's situation does not advance.

It is true that the defender is showing signs of improvement in recent times, but that may not be enough for a Samuel to be played in the coming months for his team.
