Barcelona have told Ilaix Moriba they have made a deal with Nuno’s Tottenham Hotspur, according to sport.
What is the story?
sport report tonight (7pm UK time) that Tottenham have reached a deal with Barcelona on Moriba’s transfer.
Spurs will pay Barcelona an initial transfer fee of € 15million (£ 12.85million) for the teenage central midfielder.
The La Liga side have informed Moriba about the deal they have made with Spurs.
On Moriba’s side, he has made personal terms with RB Leipzig, who is ready to pay € 6m (£ 5.14m) as a transfer fee for him at Barca.
Barcelona have told the 18-year-old central midfielder and his representatives that they will only sell him to Leipzig if they match Tottenham’s offer.
What if Moriba refused to go to Spurs?
Well, according to the report, Barcelona won’t sell the midfielder now and play him in the first team this season.
Moriba is at the end of his contract at Barcelona next summer.
Could a transfer from Tottenham take place?
Moriba appears keen on moving to Leipzig, but Spurs could still convince him to move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Yes, Tottenham won’t play in the Champions League or the Europa League this season, but it’s a huge club that will be a challenge for the Premier League top four.
Spurs need to show how the youngster can progress and develop under the guidance of head coach Nuno and how he can play an important role in the future of the club.
