Barcelona have reportedly told Samuel Umtiti that he’s no longer wanted and needs to find a way out of the Camp Nou.

Sport are reporting that Barcelona have come to the conclusion that he’s simply not living up to expectations and the best thing for all involved is a transfer away.

Of course that’s likely to be easier said than done because of his injury problems. He’s currently sidelined with more knee trouble and there’s no clear return date in sight.

Sport reckon the most likely option is that Umtiti could go on loan to Italy and mention Napoli as a possible option for the Frenchman.

Barca will then promote Ronald Araujo to the first team to join Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique and hope to bring in Eric Garcia as their fourth centre-back for next season.
