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.

The France worldwide, who is preparing to represent Les Bleus at the World Cup later this month, penned a new five-year contract extension at Barcelona on Sunday night.

Barca have not yet revealed how much Umtiti's new release clause will be but a source told ESPN FC it will be "significantly more" than the current €60m.
