Umtiti: I want to renew at Barca

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has confirmed he wants to renew his contract at the club and wants it resolved ahead of the World Cup.

The French international defender, whose future has come under scrutiny recently, also stated compatriot Antoine Griezmann is a ‘fantastic player’ who would be a ‘big signing’ for Barca.

“For my part, I want to renew,” Umtiti is cited as saying by El Mundo Deportivo.

“It’s important to resolve this issue before the World Cup although if this is not possible, it would not bother me.

“At the moment, there is no more news or further developments.

“Griezmann? He is a fantastic player who would be a big signing for us.”
