PHILIPPE DESMAZES -
If there is one transfer rumor that can make many Lyon supporters feverish, it is that of a return of Samuel Umtiti to his training club.
The child of Ménival, essential in the world coronation of the Blues in 2018, may well come out of a difficult season at Barça (17 games in total) with relapses in the shovel at the level of his left knee, he is otherwise more dreaming OL fans only the prospect of an Andersen-Marcelo-Denayer triplet.

Monday evening, the Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, specializing in the transfer window, indicated that Barça was seeking to attract Memphis Depay by proposing in this transaction with OL, Samuel Umtiti.
Since the arrival of Ronald Koeman on the Catalan bench, the arrival of his former attacking leader with the selection of the Netherlands has been evoked with insistence, especially in the Dutch media.
"It is not in OL's interest to let their captain go"
But even if there is only one year of contract left to the Lyon captain, hardly inclined to extend the adventure in Ligue 1, Jean-Michel Aulas was quick to react on Twitter on the subject.
If the president of OL seemed open to a departure in August, this would be less the case with the resumption of the season.
@OL @RMCsport if Memphis could leave in August he should stay with us for 20/21!
Contrary to what I have read there was no exchange with Barça, I do not think it is in OL's interest to let their captain go after this year truncated by the LFP

“Memphis should stay with us,” he said.

Is it more to see him leave the free club in a year?
