Barcelona move to tie down starlet amid Arsenal interest

first_img1 Munir El Haddadi Barcelona are set to offer a new contract to wonderkid Munir El Haddadi to ward off Premier League interest.The youngster scored on his debut for the club against Elche on Sunday and is tipped to be the next superstar to emerge from Barca’s fabled ‘La Masia’ academy.Munir signed a new deal in January but this was reported to have a release clause of under £10m.That alerted a number of clubs to his availability, including Arsenal, and Barca have reacted swiftly, with El Mundo Deportivo reporting that sporting director Andoni Zubizaretta telling the 18-year-old they will offer him a substantial pay-rise.His release clause will then automatically be raised to £27.82m, a sum which should ensure he continues to develop at the Nou Camp rather than be lured elsewhere.last_img
