Barca eye new deals for Oscar Mingueza, Ilaix Moriba

Oscar Mingueza and Ilaix Moriba, both highly rated, are expected to be offered new contracts by Barcelona.

With a slew of young stars on the rise at Camp Nou, newly-elected president Joan Laporta is eager to strike new deals with a number of them in order to fend off competition from other top European clubs.

The Catalan club has already signed Alex Collado, a 21-year-old midfielder, to a new contract that runs until 2023, and according to Marca, Laporta is planning to sign new contracts with Mingueza and Moriba.

Mingueza's current contract will expire in less than three months, but Barcelona intends to extend his contract for another two years.

The central defender, who can also play fullback, has made 21 appearances in LaLiga this season, impressing manager Ronald Koeman.

Meanwhile, 18-year-old Moriba has only started once in the Spanish top flight this season, but the midfielder has shown flashes of his ability when called upon, and Barca are keen to extend his deal, which runs out in 2022.
