Samuel Umtiti, Barcelona Agree on Contract Extension Until 2022-23

Umtiti signs five-year Barcelona contract

"FC Barcelona and Samuel Umtiti have reached an agreement to extend the player's contract for a further five seasons through to 2022-23", a statement said.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has agreed to sign a five-year contract extension, the Catalan giants have announced.

Umtiti has been a success since joining from Lyon for £21.2m (€25m) in 2016, forming a formidable partnership with Gerard Pique at the heart of Barca's defence.

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 extension will see the Frenchman remain at Camp Nou till June 30, 2023, putting an end to Manchester United's hopes of signing him.

India's economic growth jumps to 7.7%
India imports almost 80 percent of its oil and fluctuations in crude oil prices seriously affect the Indian economy. The pick-up in investment activity (fixed capital formation) is also a good sign.

"I'm at a club that allowed me to realise my dream of playing there".

The 60m euro buyout clause in his old contract had begun to look low after Liverpool paid 84m euros for Virgil van Dijk in December and Manchester City paid 70m euros for Aymeric Laporte in January.

He will officially put pen to paper on Monday, which will delight Barcelona fans as he was one of the few key first-team players who were yet to sign new deals.

Umtiti recently fuelled even more speculation linking with the Premier League runners-up by refusing to rule out a move, insisting he would only make a final decision on his future after the World Cup.
