Barcelona president Joan Laporta says they're ready to sell Ilaix Moriba this summer if he doesn't sign a new contract.
Laporta has reiterated that he will not be allowed to depart on a free transfer in the summer of 2022.
"We'll try for this case not to repeat itself," Laporta said, speaking at the Camp Nou for the presentation of Emerson.
"He has a year left and doesn't want to renew. It's a situation we don't accept and we have to act.
"He's a great player and, if he doesn't renew, he knows he will have other solutions. We don't want players, who we've made here at home, who don't want to renew with a year left.
"He's been given opportunities, but the club is above all and they can't make this kind of move on us. I hope the situation can be recovered.
"I feel bad that he doesn't recognise what we've done for him. We won't let him leave for free.
"Whoever wants to leave is free to do so, but with some conditions. Unfortunately, that's how it is."
