Barcelona management are happy with the attitude of Samuel Umtiti, despite him not being considered for selection.

Sport says several clubs have asked to take Umtiti on trial to check his physical condition but neither the club nor the player have accepted in what has been deemed as a lack of respect.

Umtiti has completely recovered from previous injuries and hopes to go out on loan in the coming weeks.

Barça are helping the player and his camp find an exit. They will allow him to leave for nothing, although the player has not accepted that because he has a contract until 2026 and there's also the option of going out on loan.

Umtiti was close to Rennes but the French club opted for other options and his desire now would be to return to Lyon.

Barça are not currently planning to rescind his deal and hope to find a new club for him. Cutting his contract would not help save money and the club also value the effort he's making to find a new club, despite a lack of luck so far.
