Barcelona are desperate to avoid losing talented youngster Ilaix Moriba, multiple sources told ESPN, and his renewal will be a top priority for the club's next president, along with a new deal for Lionel Messi.

Midfielder Ilaix, 17, has a contract until 2022 and Barca want to extend it at all costs, believing he could be the next big talent to break into the first team, following the path of Ansu Fati.

Barca are working on refreshing the first team squad, and a new president will have to look to their famed La Masia academy due to a lack of financial resources for big signings. As well as Fati and Moriba, there are a number of other prospects who are expected to make the grade. Left-back Alex Balde and forwards Fati, U.S. international Konrad de la Fuente and Ilias are seen as key parts of the club's plans, together with two other recently signed youngsters, Pedri and Sergino Dest.
