Exclusive: Spanish expert confident Samuel Umtiti would sign for Tottenham

La Liga expert Euan McTear believes that Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti would drop down a level and sign for Tottenham.

Umtiti has made just 49 appearances across the previous three seasons for Barcelona following several different injuries since winning the World Cup with France back in 2018.

Having missed more than 50 matches with various knee problems, the centre-back, who wasn’t included in the French squad for Euro 2020, is now surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp and is now open to leaving Barcelona.

With Umtiti not in Ronald Koeman’s plans moving forward, reports believe that Barcelona are prepared to go to extreme lengths to get rid of the former Lyon centre-back and let him leave for nothing despite having two years left on his deal.

£208,000-a-week man Umtiti has played in the Champions League for most of his career, but Spurs will be in the UEFA Conference League next season following their seventh-place finish.

However, after a wretched three seasons in which he’s played very little football, McTear told Football FanCast that playing regularly will be top of Umtiti’s wish-list:

“To go to Tottenham is a step down from Barcelona but it’s a step up from sitting on the bench and even in the stands.

“There’s a World Cup next year, so I’m sure he wants to get back playing, so I’m sure Tottenham could be an option.”
