Suarez pulled a goal back in the 88th minute and 57 seconds later Messi met a cutback from Philippe Coutinho first time, smashing the ball under the grasp of Sevillagoalkeeper Sergio Rico and salvaging Barca's long unbeaten league run, which was stretched to 37 games, one shy of a La Liga record.
Umtiti called the release clause worth £53 million in his current Barca deal "low" but also said his "sole focus is on Barcelona", despite the interest from United and "other clubs".

Barcelona are now 12 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid approaching the latter stages of the season, but Valverde has said that his team still have work to do in order to reclaim the crown.
Valverde said: "The game was very bad, because in the first half they mounted unsafe counterattacks after our corners, though we also had some clear opportunities. They had a lot of chances after making it 2-0 but we showed a lot of pride and we stayed strong mentally", Suarez told reporters.
As Messi warmed up, Sevilla should have been three in front when Navas raced through one-on-one, but Ter Stegen held him up momentarily before Pique cleared his shot off the line.
"We haven't known how to handle this kind of situation, it hasn't happened to us during the season".
