Samuel Umtiti suffers fresh injury just 2 days after returning to Barcelona training
Barcelona center-back, Samuel Umtiti may have been ruled out of La Liga resumption following the calf injury he suffered during one of their training sessions last week.
The Frenchman recently returned to the club along with other players for the first time since March when the league was suspended due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.
However, the World Cup could not last beyond the second day before picking up an injury, but it is unsure when he will be fit to re-join his colleagues.
Barcelona confirmed the development on their official website, saying: “the first-team player Samuel Umtiti has a right injury and his recovery will dictate his return to training.
“The injury came about in Saturday’s individual training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
Quique Setien’s men were allowed back on the training ground on Friday after testing negative to COVID-19 and they were separated into three pitches in order to undergo sessions.
They also embraced this patter in a bid to maintaining social distancing while getting fit and ready for league actions.
As it stands, the Catalan sit atop of the table with two points better than arch-rival Real Madrid with 11 games to wrap up the 2019-20 season.
Also, Barcelona are planning hard to sign Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez and they are even said to be considering selling Arturo Vidal for them to raise money to buy the player.
Lautaro Martinez has been impressive so far for Inter Milan in which his performances have caught the interest of Barcelona.
According to the report by Marca, Inter Milan have already slapped a £96 million release clause on Lautaro Matinez, and Barcelona will now need to sell a player or two before they can go for him.
