Samuel Umtiti’s future has dominated the headlines in recent weeks and the defender had reason to celebrate against Roma on Wednesday.
The Frenchman had a huge hand in Barcelona’s second goal as his shot hit the post and was eventually bundled home by Kostas Manolas.
Umtiti ran off celebrating and made a point of grabbing the Barcelona badge on his shirt and pointing to it as he ran to the home fans.

Was it a message to the fans? Was it just a simple celebration? It’s difficult to say for sure but it certainly looks a good sign. Signing the new deal would be an even better sign though.
