Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea on transfer alert with Barcelona ‘willing to sell wonderkid Ilaix Moriba’

Barcelona are reportedly struggling for cash and are unwilling to meet Moriba's contract demands, report Mundo Deportivo.
In March the Spanish outlet claimed several clubs were chasing the midfielder, with United making a 'firm offer'.
Moriba has a buyout clause of £86million but Barcelona will cash in if he does not lower his demands.
And the youngster's future has grown more doubtful following his switch from Stellar Group to powerful German agency Rogon, who are now representing him in contract negotiations.
It is not the first time Moriba has dealt with a transfer situation amid disagreements over his contract.
In 2019 he came close to joining Manchester City after his youth contract came to an end, but a late breakthrough in negotiations with Barcelona meant he remained in Spain.

In fact, Moriba's father revealed he had even booked a flight for his son to go to Manchester, which he cancelled at the last moment.
The Citizens could be encouraged by this latest development but Chelsea and United may also act on their interest.
RB Leipzig are another interested party so it could be a big summer ahead for Moriba.
