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 Cameroon-born France international's new deal ties him to the club until 2023 and he will put pen to paper at the Nou Camp on Monday morning.

Liverpool fans' hopes of signing Barcelona's Samuel Umtiti this summer in a mega deal have been scuppered as the top-quality centre-back has finally signed a new deal with the Catalan club.

The 24-year-old defender had been linked with a move to Manchester United. "We think with this clause no one will come here and try to take him away from us", Bartomeu told reporters. However, after committing his future to Barca until 2023, with his release clause rising to €500m, he said he never considered leaving.

Tite said there was no doubt that Neymar gives them something extra but said that needed to be kept in perspective. "By the third, fourth or fifth game then he will be back to his level", added the Brazil coach.

After signing his contract and speaking to the media on Monday in Barcelona, he will return to France to continue his preparations for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. Since the first day I arrived it felt like home and now I want to stay here for a long time.

The loss of Neymar for €222m to Paris Saint-Germain last August exacerbated fears Umtiti could be tempted to leave, just two years after signing from Lyon in a €25m deal.

I'm nervous today because it's a dream to continue here.

"I am really happy here and I have everyone's confidence, so I couldn't leave".
