teenager Ilaix Moriba has claimed that he has been subjected to a number of racist insults during his contract dispute with the club.

The future of the 18-year-old Barca player is currently uncertain and while he has entered the final 12 months of his contract, it is still unclear whether he will extend his contract with the club. After making his debut for Barca's first team last season, he is no longer in the pre-season and has been attacked by racists on social media.

In Tik Tak, he released a video showing offensive messages sent to him, including emojis of monkey and a middle finger. "seriously?" He wrote in the video caption.

Goal claims that Agent of Moriba is the main reason for not renewing his contract with Barcelona. The club, which has many restrictions on players' salaries due to poor financial situation, intends to reduce Moriba's salary. Joining Barcelona in 2019, he became the highest paid young player in the history of Blaugrana. Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea are monitoring his situation and will try to sign him if Barca cannot persuade him to stay.
