Barcelona have been open to cutting down their excesses inorder to stabilize their finances.

Recently, it looked likely that Umtiti is set to leave on loan to Rennes and reunite with former manager Bruno Genesio. Unfortunately, it was revealed that Rennes were having doubts about his physical condition.

Reports according to Fabrizio Romano confirmed the information and added an extra detail; Rennes are trying to sign young Brazilian defender Morato from Benfica.

This will be a big disappointment to the defender and Barcelona who are looking for possible ways to reduce their wage bills.

This implies that both player and club must search for a destination for Umtiti.

Football espana reported that the former Lyon defender abstained from surgery in order to play and win the World Cup with France in 2018. Since, he has haunted by recurring injuries and it appears that nightmare is continuing, with that decision increasingly looking like a deal with the devil.
