Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison look set to leave Old Trafford in the summer.

 

The Mirror are reporting that contract talks with the highly-rated forward have broken down.

 

The Red Devils’ manager Sir Alex Ferguson is a huge fan of the 18-year-old and is said to be desperate to keep him at Old Trafford.

 

The Manchester United hierarchy have not given up hope of trying to come to a deal, but Morrison’s stance has reportedly become more stubborn in recent weeks.

 

The speedy striker has been at United since he was 14 but a change of agent has brought about the displeasure of Ferguson and chief executive David Gill.

 

A series of off-field problems have hampered Morrison’s career up to now, Ferguson and Gill beginning to lose patience.

 

The youngster has been in and out of trouble with Police but United have been unwavering in their support for up to now.

 

Morrison was in court during last season, where he pleaded guilty to a charge of witness intimidation.

 

Manchester United officials believe the club have done everything they can to help Morrison through his personal problems, due to their high regard for his talent.

 

European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich have been credited with an interest in the player – both will be monitoring the situation carefully.
