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 non-Spanish clubs from January next year.
There had been suggestions that Moriba’s wage demands are excessive, but the Catalan club will still do their utmost to try and keep him.
