Umtiti's options for the future
Days go by and uncertainty continues over Samuel Umtiti's future. We do not know what will happen to the Frenchman next year.
Umtiti wants to stay at Barca, a club whose contract runs until 2023, but the Catalan outfit have got other plans for him. They are planning to sell him.
Before his latest injury, 'Mundo Deportivo' says that Umtiti has got more than enough suitors. The Catalan paper says that Barca know about Lyon, Marseille, Rennes, Arsenal, West Ham and Everton's interest.
Ligue 1 or the Premier League, therefore, could be his next destinations. Although maybe these clubs have changed their mind after the central defender once again had knee problems.
In any case, Barca's plan is to sign a central defender and let Umtiti leave. 'Mundo Deportivo' explains that the club are planning to get him on loan with the option to buy him later on.
Barca are confident that Umtiti changes his mind. if he wants to play in the Euros next summer, he knows that he has to play and there is no place for him at the Camp Nou.
