English sports channel Sky Sports have linked Premier League club Manchester United’s midfield starlet Ravel Morrison (18) to Barça.
The amount that should be paid to gain the services of the England youth international is small, about £200,000 . However, there is a factor that could increase the final amount of the transfer as, though Morrison is free at the end of this season, Manchester United would be entitled to collect a compensation for training costs of the player, who has not yet reached age 24. The teenager, who appears less than interested in the offers from the offices of Old Trafford, will be free to negotiate with Barça and PSG as they are the two clubs British media claim have shown more interest in the player.
Morrison is considered the most talented player of his class in the ranks of United, according to their own technicians, but has come under heavy criticism in the past due to his off-field behaviour and links with local gangs, which has even led him to jail on several occasions. Arsenal and Manchester City are also reported to be interested in this diamond in rough.
