Barcelona have confirmed that Samuel Umtiti is set to undergo a foot operation, just days after tying the centre-back to a new four-and-a-half-year contract, APA reports citing

Umtiti has only played once for Barca across all competitions this season, having so far failed to force his way into Xavi's plans after falling out of favour under his predecessor Ronald Koeman.

Despite his bit-part role in the squad, Umtiti agreed to extend his contract until 2026 and take a pay cut last week, but has now suffered a fresh blow in his bid to reignite his career.
