Samuel Umtiti is no longer needed at FC Barcelona and he knows he’s too good, it seems. Spanish media celebrated the ambiguous answer given by the French defender to the camera of El Chiringuito.
Umtiti came from Olympique Lyonnais in 2016 and since then has made 132 official matches. However, in part due to his injuries, his share has shrunk and Barcelona are now hoping to keep some much-needed transfer income. The fact that he was left out of the match selection during the first games of the season is a clear indication in this regard.
This weekend there was a film crew from beach bar to his car. Umtiti was asked if he still saw “room” for himself in choosing FC Barcelona. “I have space in my car…”, the answer was passionate Picked up by other Spanish media.
Umtiti is still at Camp Nou until 2023 and has already turned down an offer from Barcelona, who wanted to cancel his contract. The Frenchman has been recently linked to Benfica under Jan Vertonghen and is said to only want to leave if he can go to a club that plays in the Champins League.
🤔 Does UMTITI think he has a distance in Para?
