Samuel Umtiti is already in Barcelona and has already been examined by the medical services of FC Barcelona. First thing in the morning the French defence has gone to the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper to consult with Dr. Pruna. After the rigor tests to the cartilage of his left knee it has been concluded that the conservative treatment in Barcelona will continue with the return of the Christmas holidays with the intention that the player will acquire the rhythm of competition that he has lost. During this process your knee will be tested to see how it reacts to the gradual increases in the workload. After the treatment in Qatar Umtiti's situation is similar to that of before leaving. Day to day will mark whether or not it progresses in its recovery and, in case of doing it, if this advance is lasting or truncated with new annoyances, as it happened after returning to Atl?tico de Madrid. Within the club, in the area where the big decisions are made, they are not optimistic about Umtiti's knee and suspect that despite going long, the French will not dribble the operating room. The movement with Jeison Murillo is the best proof of that. The Frenchman already knows what is there but resists surgery. Umtiti left for Doha (Qatar) on December 2 to begin a conservative treatment under the supervision of the medical services of Barcelona and the French Federation in Aspetar, a reference clinic in Qatar.
