At the start of the summer transfer window, FC Barcelona made it clear that they had a long list of players for sale. Samuel Amti was on the list, but it has now been revealed that he presented his case to Barcelona President Juan Laporta and asked for another chance to prove himself.
According to the Spanish publication. Brand, There was a “tense” meeting between the Frenchman and the club’s president, where the 27-year-old was told the club would find a new home for him this season. This is a decision supported by the fact that the center-back has not been able to make a valuable contribution to the club in recent days, he has spent most of his time on the bench or has been sidelined due to injury.
However, the report claims that Umiti became very emotional and shed tears after asking Lipporta for another chance. The player believed that the club’s medical staff had to blame him for the delay in his recovery.
Fortunately for him, Lipporta listened and agreed to include him in the club’s plans for the 2021/22 season. Of course, the whole matter has to be discussed with the manager Ronald Koeman, who will make the decisions while talking about the lineup.
Amati was not able to control her emotions by sitting in this meeting which could have sealed her fate. So far, he lives in Camp Nine, and will have at least a few months left to prove himself.
Other ex-partners, on the other hand, weren’t so lucky. Emerson Royal was suddenly sent to England to join Tottenham, although he had just arrived earlier this summer. Similarly, Miralium Pejnik was sent on loan to Beskta until he allegedly accepted a 60% pay cut.
Barcelona wanted to raise funds, and his tears aside, perhaps the real reason for allowing Amati to stay was that Barcelona did not receive a satisfactory offer. Due to his recent injury concerns, the club was unable to attract many of the sweaters who were willing to pay large sums.
