The list of departures from the FC Barcelona continues to increase, despite the fact that some of the names that are located at the top of the list of the Blaugrana team are more than evident, and that of the defender Samuel Umtiti It is one of them. The French central is one of the players who has not been taken into account by Xavi Hernandez, and his departure is one of the goals that the culé directive has for the next transfer market.
One of the reasons goes through the economic section, something that will allow the Blaugrana cast to save one of the highest salary chips on the squad. Likewise, on the sporting level, the Catalans seek to remove a footballer whose physique long ago stopped being willing to play in the European elite.
Given this, the name of the French defender has been linked to a series of squads from the old continent that present less level and demand, especially from Turkish football where they can assume their high economic demands.
A proposal with which Barça smiles
One of the teams that are interested in taking over the Frenchman’s services is Fenerbahce. While it is true, the institution ceased to be at the top of the Turkish Super League, so one of its objectives for 2022 will be to add new hierarchy reinforcements.
In Ottoman lands they are able to regain the player’s physical condition and give him the confidence he needs to become the leader of the club’s defense again. Of course, the operation will not be easy, since it will depend a lot on the decision made by the footballer, who on different occasions has refused to leave the Camp Nou.
On the other hand, in France there are several teams that are also closely following the situation of Samuel Umtiti, and which are willing to pay a large part of the chip by the end of the season. However, in Barcelona they do not take these options into account for the moment, since the offers are far below what is required.
