Offers arriving for Umtiti to leave Barcelona in January window

The defender has not played at all this season and may finally leave

In the summer, Barcelona tried to move on Samuel Umtiti but it wasn't possible, even though the centre-back did reluctantly agree he would leave on loan if the club was right.

A late meeting between Umtiti and the Barça president Joan Laporta ended with a 'no aggression' pact and the option to reduce the defender's salary.

Umtiti earned some months to prove his fitness and his ability but he has not been able to yet. The Frenchman has not played a single minute this season and that seems likely to continue under Xavi Hernandez.

The best solution for everyone is a move and offers have arrived ahead of the January window. They're not from top-level clubs, but they're valid options for Umtiti to play football again.

November could be a key month in terms of a decision. Barça will speak with Umtiti and his camp and ask him to leave. Once again.

In France, England and Turkey he could have options to move. And this time, Barça finally believe he will end up leaving, which is for his own good as much as for the club's good.
