Barcelona are set to hold talks with Ilaix Moriba over a new contract next week amid interest from Chelsea.

This is according to Spanish media outlet Marca via Daily Mail, with the report claiming Barcelona are determined to keep the 18 year old midfielder.

The Blues are interested in signing the Barcelona midfielder who has just one year left in his contract.

Barcelona are set to offer Moriba a new three-year deal as they look to prevent a scenario that would allow him to discuss a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea in January.

Moriba broke into the Barcelona first-team this season as he made 18 appearances across all competitions, scoring once and providing three assists.

Moriba, who has a buyout clause of £86million is also wanted by Premier League sides Manchester United and Manchester City.
