Samuel Umtiti agrees five-year contract extension with Barcelona

But, they have now received a setback in their bid to sign Umtiti, with the Frenchman reaching an agreement with Barcelona over a new five-year deal.

However, he has committed his future to the team and there is no mention of what his new release clause is in the press release from Barcelona. Since the first day I arrived it felt like home and now I want to stay here for a long time.

Umtiti added: "I'm nervous today because this is a dream that continues".

"I just couldn't leave". I don't see myself playing for another team.

Umtiti knocked back the claim that the negotiations over his new contract stalled because he was angling for more money, too. I look at Andres Iniesta as an example.

The 24-year-old is now regarded as one of the best central defenders in Europe, therefore his buyout clause - which was deemed much lower than his true valuation - has prompted Barca to act.

During his two seasons at the club, he has made 83 appearances in all competitions, helping the club win La Liga once and the Copa del Rey twice.

Antoine Griezmann is a target but Madrid-based Diario AS reported that he will turn down a move to Barca in order to remain at Atletico Madrid.

And upon signing the contract extension, Umtiti said: "I'm very proud to renew with Barca". We speak of many things, of how the food is, of what we do. But not about that.
