Invited to leave, Samuel Umtiti intends to facilitate the task of FC Barcelona. The French defender is ready to accept anything to leave.

Make a new start. This is what Samuel Umtiti absolutely needs this summer. Undermined by numerous injuries since the 2018 World Cup, the central defender has gradually lost his place in the starting XI of Barcelona until becoming undesirable today. A situation not easy to live for the former player of Olympique Lyonnais, who has played only one and only one game this season. It was on December 12, 2021 against Osasuna (2-2). As a starter, Big Sam played 90 minutes.

Big Sam is open to all options

Since then, nothing more for the world champion who still had some physical problems. This did not help his business because Barça continued to push to make him leave last winter. But as the previous mercatos, Umtiti remained at the dock. This summer could finally be the right one. Indeed, the residents of the Camp Nou are hopeful to succeed in finding a new point of fall to the Tricolor. And it is on the side of France that they hope to place him.

Recently, Sport revealed that Stade Rennais, Montpellier and Nice were in the running. Lyon, the preferred destination of the player, would follow his case from quite far. Abroad, Arsenal would have an eye on his situation. At 28 years old, Umtiti will reach a turning point this summer, he has not played much and has raised doubts about his fitness. Aware that he plays big, the Frenchman is ready to do anything to leave Barça this summer. This is what Mundo Deportivo says this Thursday.

The defender does not want to be a problem for Barça

The Catalan media explains that he is open to all options and would accept a loan as a transfer if it can benefit the Culés financially. He would feel indebted to Barça and would have suffered for not being able to return the trust that the club gave him by betting on him. He would not want to be a problem for the Blaugrana. This is what he would have confessed in private according to MD. But this is what he has also shown in public.

Recall that in January he extended his contract until 2026 to the surprise of everyone. It was then learned that his salary was revised downward and that he now has a release clause that allows him to leave for zero euros. Conditions that the player has accepted to facilitate the life of his club and also to be able to leave without causing problems. The summer promises to be animated for Umtiti, who has no destination, nor concrete proposal at the moment.
