During talks later this month, Barcelona will likely ask Samuel Umtiti to quit the club in the winter transfer window. After giving Ousmane Dembele an ultimatum (the football news), Barcelona want Umtiti to leave Camp Nou in January straightaway instead. This isn’t the first time Barca have treated Umtiti and Dembele as expendable as transfer rumours from last year prove.
World Cup champion Samuel Umtiti fell out of favour at Camp Nou under Ronald Koeman. And while has yet to play a minute for Barcelona this season, he will only make a football transfer conditionally.
Umtiti saw heavy links with a move away from the Blaugrana emerge this summer before he decided to stay instead.
But now, his current contract with the club is going to end in 2023.
Barcelona Want Umtiti to Leave Camp Nou in January
In light of all this, Barcelona will meet with Samuel Umtiti again in November, according to Sport. And then, in that meeting, the Blaugrana will ask him to seek new pastures for the winter.
According to the article, clubs in England, France, and Turkey might provide Umtiti with an escape route. Indeed, some prominent clubs have already made offers for a winter transfer for him.
Umtiti has two goals in 132 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions. Also, the Catalan giants have won two La Liga crowns and three Copa del Reys with him.
