Confined to the Barça bench for several seasons now, Samuel Umtiti could rally England from the next winter transfer window.

The future of Samuel Umtiti seems to be emerging on the other side of the Channel. The defender champion of the world no longer has a place in Barcelona and he could bounce back in the Premier League. According to the media El Nacional, he would have serious touches with Newcastle United. The new rich of the English elite is ready to bank up to € 20 million to obtain his services during the winter transfer window.

A real boon for Barça

The Magpies also had their sights set on Lille’s Sven Botman, but the track leading to the former Lyon player seems to be more realistic. A transfer would arrange all three parts: Barca would get rid of a player they no longer rely on, Newcastle would have the reinforcement they covet and the player would get the rebound opportunity that they have been desperately waiting for for several months.

In the past, Umtiti had already been followed by teams in the English league, such as Arsenal or Chelsea. But, as his performance declined and he stayed away from the fields, that interest faded. By relaunching with the Toons, he could regain his previous rating as well as a place in the French team.
