Barcelona suppose Premier League membership is pushing to signal Moriba
Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has offered an update on the future of Barcelona prodigy Ilaix Moriba that will not leave Blaugrana fans with any confidence.
Romano insists there is still no deal on a new contract for the gifted 18-year-old as Barcelona believe a Premier League club or maybe clubs are pushing for Moriba.
Spanish outlet Fichajes claimed earlier this month that Manchester United tabled a € 20m offer for the starlet, while Don Balon suggests Liverpool are also interested in Moriba.
The stalemate is sure to cause problems between Moriba and the club as Sport reports that the talent has already been removed from the first team and there is also a risk that they will be banned from the B team.
Sport note that Barcelona are unwilling to give in to demands from Moriba and his representatives, which puts them in a very difficult position as the ace has just entered the final year of his contract.

Moriba started 5 of his 18 games in all competitions in his breakthrough campaign last season, contributing one goal and three hands-on assists for Ronald Koeman’s side.
The Spanish youth international certainly looks like exciting prospects for the future, one that has the talent and potential that would make losing a free game an absolute disaster.
