The difficult moment that Barcelona is going through forces us to think about hiring new figures, such as Erling Haaland or Raheem Sterling. However, and despite the fact that they have already started the contacts, they should get rid of some important salaries, which allow them to face the new ones who would come to the club.
Samuel Umtiti has been the great discarded of the project of Ronald Koeman in FC Barcelona. After refusing to go out in the past market in search of a place in the starting XI, the French defender has not seen a single minute of play this season in official matches. The Catalan club plans to make cash with the defender's file, but the shot can backfire.
The Umtiti file is one of those that FC Barcelona hopes to monetize and release a salary burden. However, player inactivity can become a problem for the club. This since the FIFA regulations, in order to protect the players, can intervene so that the player leaves even at zero cost.
If he remains inactive for the remainder of the season, Samuel Umtiti may adhere to the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players to leave the Camp Nou at low cost or even for free. The players can request the intervention of the organism in case of playing less than 10% of the games of the season.
The other great figure from which they would come off is nothing more and nothing less than Philippe Coutinho, who a few years ago had come to be the great partner of Lione Messi, but whose career was fading, and ended up being one of the great failures in the history of the club. In fact, the Catalans had paid Liverpool 135 million euros for their token, and are willing to receive only 30, in order to get rid of him.
