Man Utd, RB Leipzig make offers to Barcelona superkid Ilaix Moriba

Manchester United have made an offer to Barcelona superkid Ilaix Moriba.

The midfielder, with less than 18 months to run on his Barca contract, has offers from United and RB Leipzig, says Mundo Deportivo.

While Barca's interim board haven't made a move to renew his contract, Ilaix's priority is to stay with the Catalans.

Indeed, the midfielder feels a close connection to coach Ronald Koeman, who received a message from the youngster this week, stating: "Thank-you for trusting me."

It's been revealed Koeman has established a great relationship with the young players of the locker room, where he is eager to launch a new team built around the likes of Ilaix, Pedro, Riqui Puig and Oscar Mingueza.
