Barcelona want to sign the Rapid Vienna star who will become a free agent in the summer.
Barcelona have collapsed from Champions league and now focus on The League title race. League leaders Atletico Madrid have already won the weekend game and as such, the Catalans cannot afford to slip while taking Huesca on Monday.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the best stories from Barcelona March 14, 2021
Ilaix Moriba’s dad talks about the young man’s future
Barcelona reportedly want to renew the contract of young Ilaix Moriba. His current contract expires in 2022. The 18-year-old scored the club’s first goal against Osasuna last week and much has been speculated about his future since then.
Now Morib’s father has revealed that he hopes his son will spend the rest of his career in Barcelona. I’m talking to Sports, Moriba said:
“I consider Ronaldo ‘Pope Ilaix.’ The person who gives you a chance at life like she gave my son must be very grateful. Not all coaches make such a gesture. Were it not for Koeman, some of these youngsters would not be on the first team.
“With this dynamic, thanks to Coeman, I am thinking one hundred percent about Barca. Why leave? At that age risking going to another team when you have a coach who bets on a young boy from La Masia in a complicated match like Seville. That must be appreciated. Almost no one knows. “
Barcelona ready for the ax to Philippe Coutinho
Barcelona have finally decided to end Philippe Coutinho’s nightmare at the club. According to SPORT,, Cules will be ready to sell it in the summer, and the Brazilian has hit the price of £ 45 million.
According to the report, Barcelona still owe Liverpool somewhere in the region £ 45 million from an initial £ 140 million deal. As such, attackers from the sale of Coutinho will be used to pay Liverpool.
The new management of Barcelona reportedly considered Coutinho an excess of demands, and given how desperate the club is to unload the players, he is almost certain that he will not be at the club after the end of the season.
Barcelona is interested in Yusuf Demir
Barcelona has joined the race to sign 17-year-old Rapid Vienna midfielder Yusuf Demir, according to ESPN (via Barca Blaugranes). Several European giants are interested in the young man whose contract with the Austrian club is due to expire in the summer.
The competition for the young man is expected to break out in the summer. It’s a bit surprising to see Barcelona’s name being thrown into combinations as they are stocked in the midfield department and are in a rather precarious financial situation to compete with clubs like Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City.
