Spanish football morning headlines for 5 March.
United in for Moriba
The central midfielder has been included in the first-team in recent weeks – he has made four senior appearances including a substitute appearance in this week’s Copa del Rey victory over Sevilla.
The report adds that the highly-rated teenager – whose contract expires next year – wants to stay at the Camp Nou.
Barca defensive stars missing
Both central defenders sustained injuries this week and neither were involved in Friday’s training session, as per El Mundo Deportivo – meaning Samuel Umtiti and Clement Lenglet are likely to start in the positions.
Madrid alleged payment without contract
The allegations are made by Der Spiegel’s Football Leaks and as cited by El Mundo Deportivo.
