Barça wants to keep its young stars

Barça wants to keep other clubs away from its young stars and will keep quiet to extend them.

FC Barcelona, ​​under the management of Joan Laporta, should continue to trust La Masia by extending the contracts of Oscar Mingueza and Ilaix Moriba.

This comes in addition to the recent contract extension announced for Alex Collado, as Barcelona look to plan for the future.

Mingueza’s current deal expires in June, but the club have the option of extending it for two years, which executives plan to exercise without renegotiating the terms.

The emergence of the 21-year-old defender has been one of the real bright spots for Ronald Koeman this season amid a lot of chaos in the background.

With two goals and two assists in 32 appearances, Mingueza has shown himself not only reliable but versatile, playing at the back in a four-man defense and also center-back in a three- or four-way rear.

Ilaix Moriba, meanwhile, had fewer first-team opportunities but gave a glimpse of his immense potential, most recently as a substitute against Real Madrid.

The 18-year-old has a contract until 2022, but Barcelona want to keep him much longer than that.

Other young people whose renewal is being considered by Barcelona are Ronald Araujo, under contract until 2023, and Konrad de la Fuente, who has an agreement until 2022.

As a reminder, Moriba scored his first senior goal for Barcelona in the Catalans’ 2-0 win over Osasuna in Liga Santander.

In fact, his first first-team achievement came in the same place Ansu Fati scored his first Barcelona goal last season.

“I like to shoot,” Ilaix told media in El Sadar. “I don’t know how I cut and pulled with my left foot… thank God it came in. I will never forget that. I’ll take him to my grave. “

“Ansu is like a brother to me and I have a lot of love for him. I’m delighted to have scored my first goal in the same goal as him. “
