But where will Samuel Umtiti end up? Designated for months as one of FC Barcelona’s undesirables, the French international was close to recovering at the Stade Rennais this summer, he who remains loved by Genesio since his years in Lyon. But their physical situation was divided between the reds and the blacks. However, a new outlet seems to be emerging for the former OL centre-back.
In fact, Olympiakos will meet with FC Barcelona on Monday to discuss a possible signing of Samuel Umtiti, he assured ESPN. The Greek club could offer him the chance to revive and will discuss with Barça next week a one-year loan, with the payment of part of his salary. An important point since the other clubs were reluctant to match the Frenchman’s salary.
