Barcelona are reportedly ready to sell Ilaix Moriba, placing Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea on high alert.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to sell Ilaix Moriba during this summer's transfer window, placing Premier League trio Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea on high alert.

The 18-year-old ended the 2020-21 campaign with 18 first-team appearances, including 14 outings in La Liga, where he scored once and provided three assists.

A recent report claimed that Barca viewed the youngster as an 'essential' player for the club's future, amid suggestions that Man United had made a firm offer for his services.

However, the midfielder only has one year left to run on his current deal, and according to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan giants are preparing for his possible departure this summer.

The report claims that Ronald Koeman's side are not prepared to meet Moriba's wage demands on a proposed new deal and will sanction his exit unless he softens his stance.

The teenager, who has been with Barca since the age of seven, made his Champions League debut against Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 stage of the 2020-21 competition.
