Barcelona is very active in this window of signings, as was the last summer window of Real Madrid. It seems that the Catalan club is considering signing a defense, and it is not something that surprises because the defense of the Catalans are quite fair.
According to sources close to FC Barcelona, he is considering signing a central defense in the transfer market in the winter market. For all that is heard it seems that the Catalan club is preparing to find a substitute for Samuel Umtiti to leave the club, due to his bad physical form and his numerous substitutions. The French player is also valued at around 50 million Euros, and would not be willing to be devalued thus losing its value.
Umtiti, who joined FC Barcelona in 2016, had an excellent career start in Barcelona. In fact, during several stages, she was one of the best defenses in Europe after her magnificent performances, and together with Raphael Varane, it was a fundamental piece for France to be proclaimed world champion in the Year 2018.
In spite of everything, the Frenchman has suffered a decrease in his performance in the last two years, and since the arrival of Lenglet, he has been relegated to the substitution. It seems that the Gauls are not lucky in this team, Griezmann who was the great promise of this season already has one foot out and more after it was announced that Messi negotiates his conditions, in which his departure would be included.
The former Sevillian, has become the head office of Barcelona with Gerard Piqué, while the Frenchman has had numerous physical problems. Since the beginning of the 2018/2019 season, the defender has gone through four different stages on the bench because of an injury.
The decline of the Umtiti game was confirmed when last season he only played 14 league games. In this season, the French player has only participated twice so far.
