The brother and agent of the player confirmed it to Cadena SER
Samuel Umtiti is for now the most expensive signing of the summer on the Blaugrana market, since a forth forward is expected to give rest to the trident. The French centre-back, starter with his national team in the European Championships final, is very excited to arrive at Barcelona.
In an interview with Cadena SER, his brother and agent Yannick Umtiti explained among other things that the defender is learning Catalan.
"Sam is learning Catalan. Robert Fernández explained to us the club's philosophy and of Catalonia."
"He's very happy with the chance to play at Barça. He will be introduced on Wednesday or on Thursday."
"His references are Piqué, Ramos and Thiago Silva. He has personality and doesn't get nervous. This is his strength."
