as their centre-backs and it may appear that it should be enough for the next season.

Samuel Umtiti

and he should consider other clubs. The France international did not feature much under Ronald Koeman this year, with his knee injury stopping him from getting to the same level he was in the first two campaigns at Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana plan to cash in on the 27-year-old; however, they may consider sending him on a loan spell. Trying to find a suitor, who is willing to take on the Frenchman with a long record of injury, is not a simple task. He earns €12m per season and not many clubs are going to meet his requirements due to the financial problems the pandemic has made.
