Last news Chumi
According to a report from Spanish outlet 'El Mundo', Barcelona could committed the offence in the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie, away to Levante last week. Juan Brandariz, more commonly known as 'Chumi', was suspended for the club's second team, yet started the cup tie. The Catalan giants insist that the team selection did in fact comply to competition regulations, but there is an ongoing investigation into the matter.
With Samuel Umtiti expected to be sidelined until new year at the very least and question marks remaining over the state of his troublesome knee, the Spanish side are reportedly considering four options to shore up their defence.
