Ilaix Moriba will not be allowed with Barcelona.
The 18-year old midfielder will not be permitted to play with either first team or the B team until his contract situation with the Catalan giants is resolved.
Moriba and his agent is seeking a pay raise which the club is unwilling to offer.
Club president Joan Laporta is furious with the contract situation and asks him to leave Camp Nou and find a new club if he fails to sign a new contract with Barcelona.
“If Ilaix doesn’t want to renew his contract, he has other options. We don’t want players that have grown up here and don’t want to renew their contracts. We’re sorry, but the club comes before anything else and we can’t have this kind of thing happening. I want them to think again because we want to reach an agreement,” Laporta said.
“He has a year left on his contract and he doesn’t want to accept the club’s terms. We won’t accept that either and we have to send a message out to the youth players. We can’t have players that grew up here that don’t want to renew. We can’t be promoting players and then having them leave without Barça getting any benefit,” he added.
