Samuel Umtiti

The former Lyon defender was a regular for Didier Deschamps’ side as Les Bleus lifted the World Cup for the second time in their history. He was expected to do well upon his return to Barcelona. Things however, changed. Umtiti suffered a knee injury in September and relapsed on his road to recovery. Once he was back, Clement Lenglet had taken his spot.

It appears that the young defender will have a hard time replacing his fellow countryman. And with Manchester United interested, it might be better if Umtiti looks for a move away from Camp Nou where he will not be guaranteed regular minutes.
