Barcelona confirm Umtiti injury

World Cup winner linked with Arsenal move addresses rumours - why the Gunners were right to not sign him

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has dismissed any contact between the Catalan giants and Arsenal over the summer as "useless", insisting he always meant to stay put.

Umtiti, though, claims that a new challenge at Emirates Stadium is not something that he ever considered.

'Honestly, I don't know the place this hearsay with Arsenal got here from, ' he stated in response to the video.

Monday's Catalan media once again had reports decrying the impact of worldwide football on the fitness of Barcelona players.

"Overnight, I received messages from my friends 'so you are joining Arsenal?' I'm not, I'm sorry but I'm staying at Barcelona".

Umtiti managed just 15 appearances in all competitions for Barca in 2018/19.

Messi has not played for Barca since suffering a calf injury while in pre-season at the start of August, missing most of his side's warm-up matches, as well as their three La Liga matches to date.

A series of niggling knocks prevented him making the impact he had been looking for, with another injury having ruled him out of the latest France squad.

Those games have only given Barca a disappointing total of four points after they lost away to Athletic Club Bilbao and were held 2-2 away to newly-promoted Osasuna in their final game before the global break.

The deadline passed with no deal done there and Umtiti is adamant that he was never close to heading back to his homeland.

He added: "Exchange for Neymar?"

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has laughed off reviews that Arsenal tried to signal him over the summer time regardless of Alexandre Lacazette making a plea for the centre-back to affix.
