Samuel Umtiti continues with his recovery plan. He has missed many months and does not want to take any risks. Offers are arising for him on the market too, with Everton interested, although in Italy they say there is a bigger pretender.

Juventus are the latest side to show interest, per calciomercato.it. Giorgio Chellini’s injury means they need a defence and Samuel Umtiti could fill that role, while Sokratis at Arsenal and Milenkovic at Fiorentina are also on the shortlist.

Umtiti took part in a training game with Barca B on Wednesday to see how his knee feels and when he might be back from injury, coming through it fine. He played 30 minutes in each half.

There’s a chance he could be included in the Barca squad to face Cadiz at the weekend.
