Ilaix Moriba has fired back at Ronald Koeman and hit out at claims he's demanding a wage increase at Barcelona.

Moriba's contract expires next summer and reports suggest he wants to be paid in excess of €100,000-per-week.

That's despite the club's ongoing financial state which has seen Lionel Messi leave the Camp Nou this summer.

But the 18-year-old has hit out on social media amid criticism over his contract stand-off with Barca.

On Instagram, he reposted a quote to his story that translates to: "Thousands of rumours and nobody knows the truth."

Moriba has appeared to hint that there's another side to his contract situation.

He broke into the first team last season, eventually making 14 La Liga appearances in the 2020/21 campaign.

On his supposed wage demands, Koeman said: "Ilaix? I spoke with Ilaix Moriba 2 or 3 weeks ago, more as a person than as a coach.

"His situation is horrible because he's only 18 years old, he is the future of the club and I know that the club love him.

"My advice is that money is not the most important thing.

"The truth is that I'm disappointed in him (Moriba) and his agents. I believe more in football than in money."

Moriba has since been linked with a move away from Spain as a result of his reported contract dispute.

Tottenham are reportedly keeping tabs on the midfielder's situation.
