This Monday, FC Barcelona announced the extension of Samuel Umtiti until 2026. This surprise renewal would be linked to the situation of another Frenchman, namely Ousmane Dembélé.

Samuel Umtiti has extended his contract with FC Barcelona . This is surprising news, knowing that the French have only played one game since the start of the season with the club culé. The central defender has thus initialed a new lease until 2026 with the Blaugrana, while reducing his salary considerably. Despite this renewal, the 28-year-old would still be pushed towards the exit. Thanks to this extension, Barça were subsequently able to register their recruit Ferran Torres with the authorities of the Liga . However, the new contract of Samuel Umtiti could well hide the failure of Joan Laporta in the file Ousmane Dembélé

Barça would have lost hope with Dembélé by extending Umtiti

According to Sport information, the extension of Samuel Umtiti would confirm that Ousmane Dembélé will not renew his contract with FC Barcelona . As a reminder, the 24-year-old winger would have recently refused an offer from Barça claiming a salary of nearly € 43 million per year. Therefore, Joan Laporta would have fallen back on Samuel Umtiti in order to be able to finalize the recording of Ferran Torres .
