Samuel Umtiti dispels Man United rumours with new contract

Umtiti signs five-year Barcelona contract

Barcelona have emphatically ended Manchester United's hopes of signing defender Samuel Umtiti by inserting an eye-watering release clause in his newly signed contract extension, according to reports.

Barcelona have made an official statement to announce that they have reached an agreement with Samuel Umtiti to extend his current contract with the club.

"The act of signing will take place Monday, at 10 a.m.in the Camp Nou, and later the player will speak to the media".

"The player, born in Yaounde in 1993, arrived at the club in 2016 from Lyon and in only two seasons has become an indispensable player in the Barca defence".

With the 24-year-old's future now committed to Camp Nou, Umtiti can focus on representing France at the World Cup, where he is expected to start for Didier Deschamps' side. Transfer speculation soon arose, and it seemed to have an impact on the centre-back, who regressed as the campaign wore on.




After Manchester City and Liverpool spent big on defenders Aymeric Laporte and Virgil van Dijk, respectively, in January, Manchester United were linked with a move for Umtiti.

He is part of France's 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation and is expected to start alongside Real Madrid's Raphael Varane at centre-half.

In that time, he has won one La Liga title as well as two Copas del Rey.

Umtiti will formally sign the five-year deal on Monday, before Barca hold a news conference.
