If recently it was Ivan Rakitic who claimed that he was not going to be treated as merchandise and that he was the owner of his destiny, now it is Samuel Umtiti who also refuses to leave the Camp Nou, despite being one of the soccer players with the most pull in Europe, which would facilitate his departure in exchange for a good amount that would far exceed the investment when they signed him. Umtiti, who has had many problems with his knee and has seen how Clement Lenglet snatched the title from him this season, he feels strong with the arrival of Quique Setién on the bench, relieving Ernesto Valverde. The Frenchman feels that he has the support of the coach and that he will be able to partner with Piqué on the rear axle. In addition, he has taken care to ensure that his knee problems are solved. This question raised certain doubts in medical services a factor that could advise its sale. These were all reasons to think about an exit, but the coach's bet and the player's willingness to stay make it almost impossible for him to leave in the summer . Despite all this, Barcelona continues to look for a central defender in the market to reinforce the team, since it does not have Todibo either and considers that Piqué is in the final stretch of his career. However, the priorities at the moment are different: «I am very well. I have very good feelings and I only think about playing. I'm very good, very good. My knee is perfect ”, he recently explained in an interview he gave Marca, adding that“ my dream now is to play soccer. We are favorites in all competitions because we have the best players. We are one of the best teams in the world so we have to think about winning every game and then if we can win the Champions it would be perfect ». Barcelona is now awaiting recovery from the soleus injury he suffered on the return to training after the break caused by the coronavirus. It should be borne in mind that Lenglet is sanctioned for the first match to be played, so if the French do not obtain medical discharge in these weeks, it will surely be Araujo who forms a partner with Gerard Piqué in Mallorca.
