Ilaix Moriba Over A New Contract At Camp Nou Have Only Just Commenced

The 18-year-old midfielder’s current contract runs to 2022. Barcelona want to keep him and the teenager has expressed a desire to stay as well, but the demands of his representatives are significant. Considering the Blaugrana’s tough financial situation, they could be hard to meet.

Barcelona’s talks with Ilaix Moriba over a new contract have only just commenced, but there isn’t much confidence at the Camp Nou. The two parties have started with very different positions.

Barcelona are taking comfort from the fact that the talks have only just started. They’ll keep negotiating and Barcelona hope that Ilaix understands the club’s situation and the fact that he is just developing, having only made his first-team debut in January,

The club would like to renew Ilaix for four more seasons and the length of the proposed new contract isn’t a problem from the player’s side. The problem is the amount of money they’re seeking in wages.

Barcelona believe they’re asking for too much, while the player’s representatives think they have leverage because of the possible interest of other clubs. Some of those are English clubs, who do have more financial muscle.

Ilaix is a player who finished the 2020/21 campaign strong, making a total of 18 appearances for Ronald Koeman despite only debuting at the start of the calendar year. He started five times and moved ahead of Miralem Pjanic, Sergi Roberto and Riqui Puig in the pecking order.
