  • Umtiti signs five-year Barcelona contract

Samuel Umtiti and Barcelona have reached an agreement to extend and improve the French central defender's contract.

Les Bleus beat Italy 3-1 on Friday evening, with Umtiti opening the scoring, and are still to play the United States before making their journey to Russian Federation.

"The Frenchman will be putting pen to paper on Monday at 10.00am CET in the Josep Suñol lounge at the Camp Nou".

First Lady Will Not Join President on Trips to G7, NKorea Summit
Her absence is leading to a plethora of different theories, including speculation that she has moved back to Trump Tower in NY . First Ladies don't just drop out of sight; they go to Memorial Day wreath layings, for example.

Umtiti joined Barca for €25m from Lyon in 2016 and he quickly established himself alongside Pique in the middle of the back four.

Partly because of that low buy-out fee, Umtiti has drawn attention from a number of top clubs around Europe - Manchester United were prepared to meet it to whisk him away to Old Trafford. Transfer speculation soon arose, and it seemed to have an impact on the centre-back, who regressed as the campaign wore on.

Some great news for Barcelona fans, and it's that Samuel Umtiti will continue wearing the shirt until 2023.

His new deal in Spain will put an end of reports linking him with United. That his release clause has reportedly been bumped up to €500 million will also come as a huge relief to everyone associated with the club, effectively ending the chances of any suitor to snap him up.

He is now preparing for the World Cup as part of France's 23-man squad where he is expected to partner Real Madrid's Raphael Varane.
