Barcelona find a way to let Samuel Umtiti leave the club this summer
Barcelona are trying to find a way to let Samuel Umtiti leave the club this summer. Which doesn’t seem easy after Marseille shunned the 27-year-old centre-back before OM made a deal with Arsenal on loan for William Saliba to join the team on a loan deal year As reported by Mundo Deportivo on Friday.
Azulgrana are reducing the cost of the club by implementing a policy of releasing high-paid players this summer. The French centre-back Umtiti among them. But the efforts of the Catalunya giants can take a long time. Because the player is still under a two-year contract. And refuses to cancel the contract with the club to move the agency free of charge.
Although Marseille had previously been interested in Umtiti. But OM have made a loan deal with Saliba from Arsenal, so Barcelona must try to find a new club for the 27-year-old defender to reduce the club’s wages. But it’s not easy as Umtiti has a relatively high wage and has a long history of injury, missing a total of 73 games over the past four seasons.
