R. Yuste: Moriba 'has NO future' at Barca if he does not 'change his position'

Ilaix Moriba has no future at Barcelona if he doesn't change his stance in contract negotiations according to director Rafa Yuste.

Moriba's current contract expires next year and Barcelona have so far been unable to convince the prospect to commit his future to the club.

Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman recently criticised the midfielder, saying that 'money cannot be the most important thing for an 18-year-old'.

Yuste suggested that Moriba's future will lie away from Barcelona unless the situation drastically changes.

Speaking to Movistar+, Yuste said: 'If he does not change his position, he has no future at the club.

'It's very important this message reaches all the youngsters at the club, at this difficult moment for the club.

'They must realise money is not everything, and they must be excited to play for FC Barcelona.'

Although Moriba made 18 senior appearances for Barcelona last season, 14 of which came in LaLiga, he has been frozen out of first-team action so far this campaign due to the situation regarding his contract.

Moriba appeared to hit back at Koeman's accusations with a cryptic Instagram post that read: 'Thousands of rumours and nobody knows the truth'.

Barcelona's desire to include a release clause of £343million in Moriba's contract is thought to be a key issue in contract negotiations.

Moriba, who has been at Barcelona since 2010, has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Tottenham having held talks with his representatives, while Manchester City and Chelsea are also reportedly interested.

A skillful player who has been capped by Spain at Under-19 level, Barcelona will demand at least £12million for Moriba if they are to sell him this month.
