Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti signs new five-year deal

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has banished reports of a move to Manchester United by signing a five-year contract extension at Camp Nou.

Umtiti joined Barcelona from Lyon in 2016 and has quickly established himself as a cornerstone of the Catalans’ backline.

His talents have not gone unnoticed, with United boss Jose Mourinho an apparent admirer and was reportedly interested in bringing him to Old Trafford this summer.

Umtiti, 24, has since scored two goals in 88 appearances for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

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