Barcelona eye swoop for United midfielder

Published Add your comment

Barcelona are reportedly keeping tabs on the situation of Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison.

The 18-year-old is out of contract in the summer and, as of yet, has yet to agree a new deal to extend his stay in Manchester.

According to, Barca are aware of Morrison's situation, as are nouveau-riche French outfit Paris Saint-Germain.

Morrison is regarded as one of the finest talents to emerge from Manchester United's academy in recent years, and has been tipped to have an exceptional career at Old Trafford.

He has starred for United at every level, and initially established himself as a name for the future when scoring in the FA Youth Cup against Chelsea aged only 15.

It is a competition that has served Morrison well, and he scored twice in United's final victory over Sheffield United in May, having also netted during the semi-final against Liverpool.

However, his head could seemingly be turned if Barcelona come calling, unless Sir Alex Ferguson can convince him to stay with United.

Should Morrison leave Old Trafford on a free transfer, United would be entitled to £300,000 in compensation.
