Manchester City and Chelsea are ready to ferry llaix Moriba away from Barcelona in the coming weeks.

A new round of contract talks between Barca and Ilaix's minders broke up without an agreement and growing doubts of any common ground being reached.

Barca have made their latest offer, but have not received word from Ilaix's camp.

Meanwhile, Sport says Chelsea and Manchester City are in contact and willing to offer €6m for the teenage midfielder.

With less than a year to run on his current deal, Ilaix's contract stand has seen him relegated to Barca B for preseason training and blocked from participating in any friendlies.
